I keep a dampened paper towel and squeeze it between my thumb and index finger to increase bar grip. Works surprizing well.

Or you could just lick your fingers. Works for me. Especially effective for getting your metal fingerpicks seated tightly.

I have sweaty palms so drying them for me is crucial.

Use either soap and water regularly or a Swimmers cloth.

I've been using textured tape intended for stairs.
It works just great for me, never a slip.


Ignore the Nick Manoloff bar. It's the only photo I had with the tape.
