I was wondering if there were any harpists on this forum who suffer from sweating fingers/hands especially when they are performing or are stressed and nervous. I find I get sweaty/tacky fingers whenever I am anxious about my playing and it really interferes with my sound and technique. Also, since my fingers are soft and moister I find the edge of my nail digs into the skin and causes pain (especially in the RH thumb).
Has anyone else suffered from this problem and found a solution. I have tried using Driclor (a roll-on to stop extreme perspiration) but found that this did not stop the tacky/sweaty feeling.
Look forward to hearing anyone’s ideas.
