Playing bass - pain?

My character hasn't picked up any kind of instrument for 2.5 years, but has recently replaced the bass player in a band. He's got three day's worth of practice and is just finished with his first concert, so where will he hurt?

He's reasonably fit and young, but I guess he'll be using a lot of muscles he hasn't used for a long time... but having never played bass myself, I have no idea how it will feel and where it might hurt.

I have no idea how to google for this, if there is anything I've overlooked, I apologize.

ETA: Thank you SO much to anyone who's answered so far. Additional question: how long will it take to get the calluses needed to play the bass on a tour?

LAPD medals

Collapse )

Does anyone know what the medal below her badge stands for? Dani Reese (the character) is a Homicide detective for the LAPD but before that she was an undercover cop and apparently, according to the NBC website, she was very good at being an undercover cop . So, I wondered if Reese's medal was for something specific? The only other cop I saw wearing something similar is her Lieutenant.

I've tried searching on wiki and google both yielded nothing.

Thanks in advance!
