Hi,

I am a newbie guitar player with about 2-3 weeks practice and I am starting to notice that sometimes when I make a chord using my left-hand pinkie finger, there is some slight pain in my knuckle joint of the pinkie finger…

At first, I was wondering if I was pressing too hard, but it seems to happen regardless of how much pressure I put on the string - it seems to be an ‘extension’ thing where it kind of goes out of joint as I ‘extend’ it out to reach the fret…

I don’t have a teacher to ask (and even if I did) I wanted to ask people if this is a common experience for them in the beginning stages of playing guitar that goes away? (Like the pain building up calluses under your left fingertips

Thanks
