Help with the hand pain while playing

Arm massages should help, I would also add in some wrist rolls in both directions and some extension and flexion exercises. Get your hands warm and ready to play before you even pick up the bass.

I like Aikido wrist stretches, yeah. The first several Aikido forms make excellent stretches. Probably the best use of the art :slight_smile:

I’m glad you mentioned this! I didn’t want to be ‘that guy’ bringing up martial arts so I stayed quiet. Before playing, I also use stretching forms acquired from years of martial practices and several different arts: the results are extremely helpful!

I’m way too self conscious for a personal demo, will see what I can find though.

@Old_WannaBe just search YouTube for “Aikido wrist stretches”. Plenty of choices there!
