    Trumpet would be trickier than bass that way

    I'm feeling a bit more positive about things after reflecting on it. I used my small Tele bass the first night. I found the edges of the fretboard were tough on my uncalloused hands, so maybe I need to investigated rolled edges. The second time, I used my violin bass. It was pretty comfy, and for the first time I played all night with my fingers instead of a pick. I'm going to take my Gibson EB3 next time and would like to try the finger thing again. I'll probably get around to taking the 34" Tele bass sooner or later, but I'm finding the 30" scale of the violin bass and the EB3 seems to feel right.

    I prefer playing with my fingers--but for some rhythms & sounds the pick does work better
