I have been playing bass guitar again after a long hiatus for a few months now. However, I'm noticing that my hands often 'flub' notes even things that I played before successfully. I'm also noticing that I can't always remember parts, even if learned by ear. It's like I can't focus long enough.
I also have a family history of arthritis and with the cold coming up I was wondering if perhaps that was the issue or do you think its something else? Its getting extremely frustrating.
I am going to be checking in with my family doctor very soon for an official diagnosis as to whether it's arthritis or tendonitis in my hand. If it does turn out to be arthritis do you suppose switching to a short scale bass would help?
