My band hasn't practiced much in the past few weeks (end of the semester, so much work to do), so we crammed about 17 hours of practicing into the last 2 days, but it seems like we've got everything down. however, I have 3 blisters on my pointer finger, and one on my pinky. it seems almost impossible to play like this. does anyone know anything i can do?

i start with bass and he starts with guitar, then we switch halfway through. superglue seems like a genius idea, you guys are brilliant.

i drum with blisters too, and thats always nbd until there's blood.

Lawls.

Put a thin layer of super glue over your fingertips - enough to cover the blister but not enough as to get in the way of your playing.

From the name of this website, I'm guessing 'guitar'.

Well, drummers live here too.

This. or check out some of that New Skin stuff, it's like a paint thing you put on a cut and it makes a fake layer of skin... haha. I use it when I bite my nails too low and go to play guitar and bleed when I bend strings, it helps a lot tbh.

ok ringo why dont you go quit the beatles why youre at it lol suck it the **** up!


i can suck it up, but why would i do that when theres a forum filled with people who have a solution to the problem that doesnt involve me tearing apart my fingertips? its also the matter of being terrible at the instrument due to the blisters and completely bombing it. guess im not manly enough to bear increasingly severe pain without messing up at least a few times in 45 minutes.

thx everyone

Although they are lots of versions out there of Bass finger tape for protection I have definitely found the best - go to your browser and put in Double Bass Finger Tape, it works for acoustic and electric players - hope it helps.
