It must be a birth defect! I cannot move my pinky on the fret board without my ring finger going with it. Same if I move my ring finger to an adjacent fret, my pinky goes right along with it. It’s as if the two fingers are glued together! I end up just using the ring finger where Josh says to use the pinky, and micro shifting as needed. The pinky stays right there with the ring finger like a shadow. I end up essentially playing with three fingers on the fret board.
Is this defect going to prevent me from becoming a Bad-Ass-Bass Player?
P.S. I’m really jealous of Josh’s long, dexterous fingers.
