My pinky is quite curved towards the inside, and when I fret notes with it, it is quite flattened against the fretboard; the strings are against the front of my finger, rather than the tip. Is this normal? Is this something I'm worrying too much about? If not, how do I fix it?
you cant exactly change how your finger is, if its curved, its curved. the best you can do is practice with it alot, dont stop using it no matter what though. we all need to learn to use ours, no matter what its shaped like, that just makes it a little more of a unique challenge for you if anything.
