dose having double jointed fingers affect your ability to play guitar? just wondering cause i got three.

the lead guitarist in my bands got double jointed fingers. they creep me and everyone else out. but they kinda speed up the process of getting more flexible n stuff.

Wow, what great input, posting "tl;dr" to a one-sentence message, cause that sure is funny on 4chan!! Reported

Back on topic: I'm double-jointed (I thought it was just thumbs-only, not fingers?) and it helps a ton with my bass playing, my thumb is always flat against the neck, comes in handy when going to the 12th fret area, I couldn't imagine not being able to do it, would really slow me down. I'm sure it's always a bonus to add to your style of playing.

i had a friend who played guitar with double jointed fingers and it made playing barre chords harder because of (a) awkwardly placed joints and (b) inability to tense forefinger. but i don't know if it's like that with everyone

Seeing as how double joints aren't real, no.


not really literally, but as a term referring to the ability which is refers to, it might. Stop acting like a smart ass.

You can't report somebody for making a bad joke (and you seem to be the only one holding that opinion).

tl;dr: sack up nancy boy

What exactly is the ability to which it refers? Lol! There is no such thing. Stop spreading rumors that aren't true. Finger flexibility has nothing to do with being "double jointed".

Double jointed is term commonly used to refer to a condition called hypermobility. It certainly does exist. here

That's an interesting link and some pretty creepy pictures. I'd say most who are calling themselves "double jointed" in this thread don't have quite that variation in flexibility. That thumb will give me nightmares.

TL;DR: You're a dick.

Agreed.

TL;DR: Ya

Haha in all seriousness though, it should not cause problems at all. It would actually help with long stretches along the fretboard.

What? Why the hell did you report him? Faggot.

Seriously, there's no point in reporting someone for saying tl;dr.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

Double jointed fingers are not so much of a problem as a double jointed thumb. My thumb bends backward at the middle knuckle. It makes it difficult to hold a bar chord and causes extreme pain after playing an hour or so. (Maybe I'm just getting old)
