Preventing tendonitis

Rx: Preventing injury to the noting hand (or left hand) on the bass

Preventing tendonitis is a key skill of any bassist, beginner or not-beginner. This requires removing excess tension from our posture.

From Michael Klinghoffer’s Mr Karr Would You Teach Me how to Drive a Double Bass.

Includes demonstration of an exercise for noting hand pizzicato that relaxes the muscles of your fingers and thumb.
