BlueJay Performance Fatigue (46) RE: Performance Fatigue 10 Oct 01

I am playing bass, (by default), in our band D&A here in southern Colorado. I've developed what I call "Left Shoulder Syndrome", from holding the bass,(which feels like it weighs fifty pounds at times). My left shoulder really starts to hurt at times. I've even taken to putting the strap over my right shoulder, at times, like a lot of mandolin players do, to relieve the strain.

But no matter the instrument, whether I play bass, guitar or mandolin, just the act of playing and singing takes a lot out of me. Playing music is a difficult and tiring job. Goes with the territory, I think. Not too different from any other job, except that it is a hell of a lot more rewarding. Thanks, BlueJay
