Re: Thumb Cramp

I have a similar problem, but kinda backwards-ish. My right hand at the base of the thumb, almost to my wrist, cramps right up and either have to loosen my grip dramatically or hold it with all for fingers just to hang on to it... but, after three or four songs it's fine. So mostly it doesn't cause an issue but I find I DO have to be very picky about what those first couple of songs are. I'm assuming a minor arthritic problem and perhaps I'm not warming up or stretching properly. If anyone can direct me to a proper drumming stretching technique, especially that area of the hand, I'd much appreciate it. Would love to start a set with a song or two that's the best choice to start a set because it's the best choice, not because it's physically the easiest for me.
