    A really helpful and straight-forward video – thanks very much! As a double and electric bassist I think a lot of my hand and fore-arm issues start with over-tightening in the neck and left shoulder area. Any thoughts?

    Thanks Adrian- I think that neck and shoulder tightness can certainly be related, especially when playing upright- see some of my older written articles for ideas about how to deal with this, also some vids on my youtube channel drkertztv
    Best,
