I was wondering if anyone on hear still abides by the one fret per finger rule after the 12th fret. I only use my pinky after the 12th fret if i need to do a big stretch like 12-17 orv something similar.

I don't religiously play like that, but yeah I use my pinky as I would use it elsewhere. Certain scale runs are really tricky without your pinky.

for example

E         12
B              15p12     
G  14b                 14b



Would you use the pinky to play the d note. I personally dont see the point.

I'd use my pinky for that example too
BUT I'd use my ring finger for long stretches like the previously mentioned 12-17
but I have big hands

So again, I think it's just personal preference

Nope. Pentatonics are kind of a exception. When I have my index finger at the 12th fret my pinky is around the 17th fret. One finger per fret for pentatonic would be pretty clumsy

I would use pinky for the D and be using my index and ring to support the bend.

I would use my ring for the d and quickly move it and use my ring and middle finger for the bend. If the lick was really fast i would just use the middle for the bend.

What about if the lick was like this

E      12                 12
B           15P12 15B      15P12
G 14B                                  14B

It's definitely personal preference, i can't really see how it makes a difference, as long as you play it cleanly and whatnot.
