Is it a sin not to use my pinky on the bass strings? Would it really be that ugly and look like beginner playing? The riffs is on the A string are ,for example: -12-15-14-; 10-12-7
My pinky is just too short to reach there, so I rather stretch my third finger to replace it. The same goes for drop D one finger power chords -- they are very uncomfortable to do with the pinky.
What do professional guitarists do?
Thanks!

I have to play standing up.

Practice standing up. Or sit with good posture so that your guitar is roughly the same distance away as when you're standing up.

Yeah, this is a posture thing. Unless you're under 5 foot tall you have no excuse. Check the sticky/my vids.

I'm near enough
