Ive got a wee bit of a hectic week, got a gig tuesday, and then 20 hours of recording on thursday and friday. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for keeping my fingers in tip top shape for the week.

Quite being a dick in a public forum and answer the question.

The best way is to just stay relaxed. Get a lot of rest and sleep, and eat/drink healthy. Don't have coffee the day of recording, and don't drink booze. There is no place for a bong in the studio, either. Energy bars are not going to help, they are just going to make you jittery.

You can't build up finger endurance on short notice, but you can make your fingers relaxed. Just look at the recording session as a band practice and you should be fine. Getting over the red-light syndrome is the hardest part of recording for some people.

It would keep up your energy and protein levels.

And Inky got the Bong Hit saying from Mike Dirnt... and I agree, there's no use for Bong Hits when you're recording. But when the other guys are... hit away!

20 hrs isnt too bad, you should be ok, since youre not going to be playing bass for a total of more than 2 hrs i garuantee.

Depends on how long it takes them to get the tracks right. 1 messup in a 5 minute song can mean a lot of re-recording.

It took my band 4 hours to nail the two songs we recorded to get them exactly the way we wanted them. Man that was a rediculous amount of time. Good thing the guy had cheap prices.

^yeah i know what you mean, we spent 8 hours recording three songs none of which were longer than a minute and a half. But how many times could someone mess up their own song? I honestly don't think the time playing bass in a studio environment could get to the point where it starts to affect your bass playing, unless you have bad endurance(which shouldn't be anyones case with regular daily practice)

The reason i was so concerned is beacuse were doing a live style recording, its cheaper and suits the style of my band more, i know that once you mess one thing up its from the top with this style, so i just wanted to be tip top to get everything tight.

My mom will be thrilled, if it means i do more washing up i reckon i could blag a few more sessions in the future
