Bass related: getting old and playing hurts
Jul 30, 2014 - 11:47 AM - by 78pbass
78pbass's Avatar I am 38 and haven't played bass other than some random noodling since Nov 2012. I am filling in a gig next week and had practice last night. I think I developed some tendonitis because my left wrist started to really hurt last night and continues to hurt. I don't have tingling or any other symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, as I researched on the webz.

I can type and my fretting hand is usable for most things, but bending the wrist is uncomfortable. I generally warm up and stretch, but perhaps I need to do even more before playing as I get older.

Has anyone else experience this themselves?

Chicago Peeps: July 26 Gig?
Jul 07, 2014 - 12:44 PM - by Thunderbroom
Thunderbroom's Avatar My band just got offered the 11:20p - 12:10a slot on Saturday, July 26 at Martyr's. Tickets are $8. Are any of you pretty certain you can and will make it? I'm hesitant to take the gig if we can't deliver. Of the three of us, I've been the only person to get folks to every Chicago show.

The Israel Palestine conflict
Jul 25, 2014 - 3:59 AM - by jonjohn
jonjohn's Avatar It has been all over the news for the last week and I am a bit surprised as to why there is no thread on this
Can someone explain t me what's going on?

Israel seems to be a doing a bit of an ethnic cleansing. Is that off base?

If the shoe was on the other foot maybe/probably the Palestinian people would be treating the Israelis the same.

It's a bloody sad mess
