I'm always finding new blisters on my hands. How should you deal with this HUGE blister problem?
No, I'm not. I'm putting bandaids on my hands right now. It's working out kind of good on my fingers, but not my hands. In all the time I've been playing, I haven't gotten blisters that much...Man, I don't know. Can that be right? Blisters? From playing the drums?
I remember when I was starting out that would happen to me but it was because I wasn't playing right.
Have you checked your grip? Are you gripping too tightly?
I don't know. It sounds painful. I guess you're just going to have to tape up your hands, or something.
You're not allergic to anything are you?
I'm thinking, guessing, that you're holding your sticks wrong. I don't understand how you're getting blisters on your hands. Describe, please, how you hold your sticks when you play.No, I'm not.

Actually, I think I know what happened. I went on vacation for a long time, and then started playing when I came back. Going from not playing to playing for hours a day formed the blisters. Am I right?

Jim Chapin...And what's with the sneaky invisible mode Abe?..Light enough not to let is fly away, and gently enough not to hurt it at all.
Interesting. Never heard of that, but it's rather like the way I hold my sticks. And I've always thought I was using a French grip, where the thumb is on top. Well, actually I do use a French grip the more I think about it.American grip is a combination the French & German grips. Its a comfortable matched grip with the palms at a 45% angle.
Blisters and calluses are one thing, but carpel-tunnel syndrome and crippling arthritis is another.I used to get blisters all the time when I first started out. Now my hands are a giant callus.
I just sucked it up and occasionally put duct tape over some
