Hello! I’ve been playing for a while now and notice that my pinky doesn’t curve like my other fingers! The second knuckle locks/collapses was soon as I go to press down on a string & it’s annoying! I can play fine like this, but after a while, I can feel myself getting tired/thinking about it to the point that I get frustrated while practicing!!! I’ve watched videos and read articles about how to solve this, but there are so many different answers!
Some say it just a weak pinky and that I just need to build up strength, others say it’s because of having small hands (which i do, so that already makes things difficult) and/or technique!
Others say to ignore it and that it’s fine, but some say that I have to fix this before I even want to start playing. I even read somewhere to get it check out by a doctor!
Does anyone else have this problem? What’s the right answer? Please help, this whole pinky thing is starting to discourage me from playing…
