Thank you so much Jim!

If you’re comfortable doing it, switch your grip for part of each set. I’d recommend switching for any less technical or up tempo songs. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference it makes. Also stay hydrated. It will decrease the possibility of muscle cramps.

The area where I live is economically depressed, so the live music venues have all but vanished. I teach privately, and in the process of starting a blog in January on jazz.

Good luck tonight!
