Help With Popping????

Post  MoonDoggie93 on Sun Sep 12, 2010 1:46 am

Sometimes when I'm popping a string, my index finger on my right hand (my popping finger) hits the string underneath it where the skin is connected to bottom of the nail and after a while it might start to bleed. Is there a way I can prevent this from happening? Like changing the angle of my hand or would adjusting my strap make any difference?

I presume you're slapping Flea style? Maybe try curling your index finger in a bit more. If that doesn't work then try changing the angle of your hand, so that your hand is more parallel to the strings, which should automatically feel more comfortable for your arm if you raise the strap

I'll just be boring here. Start slowly, find a way of popping that doesn't hurt your finger like that and go all the way from scratch.
