its a little hard to move my right thumb.....it aches really bad. I got it from guitar i think. How long will it take to heal? It also kinda screws up my playing and frustrates me. Are there any ways i can hold the pick (well obviously with my thumb) just so it doesnt ache so badly?
Well, I play bass, and I had the same problem with the index finger on my right hand, I laid off of it for about a week or two and it got better. It turned out I had something wrong with the ligament in my index finger. In your case the thumb, and its nothing pain relievers, joint creams and time won't cure.
How tightly do you hold the pick?
