From an 8 hour band practice. Jesus christ.. I play a 5-string bass and I feel like my fingertips (fingering hand) are gonna bleed.. Me and the drummer have it the worst. give bass all the **** you want but its deffinatley more physically demanding then guitar..

cant wait till we start playing shows again. hopefully by the end of the summer

i completely disagree
I disagree. Bass requires more wrist dexterity and is more demanding on both hands. Thicker strings = more strain on fingers. Lack of a pick = more strain on fingers. Lack of Blackness = bad bass player ((jk, i'm a white bass/guitar player))

Yeah. Try playing a 125 guage (sp) low "B".... at very fast tempos for 8 hours with your fingers.. then compare it to playing a string, half the size with a pick
