Sore forearm

Post  turboscrew on Wed Apr 21, 2010 8:16 pm

Am I doing something wrong?
My fretting hand forearm gets sore - the outer side of the forearm and
closer to elbow. Or is it just lack of practice?

BTW it begins to look like the bass guitar is not so much a musical instrument but
a sports equipment, and the warm-ups and cool-downs needs to be taken seriously.
I wonder what off-season jogging could do... Rolling Eyes

Stop. Now. Make sure you don't have any pain before you play, and if it hurts, stop.

I got mild tendonitis and it had the same symptoms as you described and I couldn't play for a month or two... Sad I'm better now but it completely threw off my habit of practising Neutral

yeah definatly stop
that could get serious

make sure you definatly warm up and stretch properly before you start playing, even if is just for a couple of minutes

also watch dmans tendon/hand exercises video if you havnt already

If it doesnt get better then definatly go and see a doctor
