My fingers are really small, but I can still manage Rusty Cooley-style 1-string arpeggios (not quite at light-speed, but anyways..) so um, idk cba to measure. my pinky is rather small, like less than 2 inches

EDIT: Before anyone says it, I was referring to my finger

when i was 14 i was more worried about measuring far more important appendages than my fingers

your fingers are far from developed i'm guessing, and even if they were full-sized, finger size has almost nothing to do with speed when you factor in economy of motion, muscle memory, etc. it'll make it harder, but there's nothing necessarily "blocking" your ability to play. worry about your fingers when you lose one, until then just play the instrument.

Unfortunately the optimal length for a pinkie finger is 5.4cm so unless you're willing to go through a lot of pain I'd give up everything now. Not just guitar, everything.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

Why do you care? Take it and leave it, as has been said. And just play.
