Arteries: You have arteries running in every finger and toe and if you feel for them carefully enough, you can feel their pulse. All arteries pulsate throughout their length but we generally only look for them in areas where they're easy to feel. The most common one is the radial artery on the inside of your wrist below the thumb, but there are many others.

Proper Warmup: I treat a lot of musicians. Cold hands are a common problem, with several possible causes. The best treatment is a proper warmup before beginning to play. You should do 5-10 minutes of gentle exercise using big muscles prior to sitting down to practice. This can be walking up & down steps, squats, sit-ups, jumping jacks. Don't get all sweaty, but get your pulse rate up.
