Somethimes if I do a pull-off with my pinky, I feel this weird uncomftorble "unhinged" or "dislocated" feeling in the first joint closest to the nail. Has anybody else experienced this? will it stop happening when my pinky gets stronger from playing more guitar?

i know what you're talking about, and that's just excess tension in the pinky...once you get the mechanics of the pull-off down, you will be able to do so without tensing up and staying loose, thus eliminating the problem...remember to practice slowly to build strength and coordination so you can perform the pull-off cleanly at faster speeds

it took you 15 consecutive hours of practice to realize that playing guitar makes you better at playing guitar. congratulations.

I did, just a lack of practice it stopped with me eventually


There is know way I have a lack of practice. Whenever I have free time, I spend it playing guitar and on weekends I play guitar constantly for 6+ hours at a time exept for the times I practice piano.

I think I know what you mean, is it like where your pinky locks except the last joint, so it ends up looking like an L shape? Go really slow. Like put your pinky barely on the string, and then slowly press down until right before that locking thing happens, and stop. Get used to that amount of pressure, and try to avoid pressing too hard, and eventually it should go away with practice.
