after reading all the "are my hands to short for playing guitar" threads I wondered how long everybody's hands were from palm to the tip of your middle finger I used the searchbar but couldn't find anything

poll coming up.

EDIT: mine are 7.3 inch

7,8 inches. Out of curiosity, does anyone know how long Paul Gilbert's hands are?
#5
7.4 inches
Although its a redundant question, as the length of your thumb and length of your individual fingers and how much you can curl your wrist is more about your physical ability

EDIT: Gilberts will be like 14 inches or so, as they are sickeningly huge. A bloke who can rest his thumb over the neck and still have enough slack in his fingers to get to the bottom strings accurately is a mix of magic and luck of the genes

dead on 7 inches, but I have a friend who has 5.6 inch hands and plays bass really well, and another friend who has 6.2 inch hands and also plays bass really well. I am a guitarist and I am not making these numbers up, it was a thing our tutor made us do one time. I just double checked my length though.

I find it embarrassing because that's how I do it and my hands are only 7.2 inches long

7,5... I've had no problems with stretches that I've come across so far. People say it's because my fingers are quite long compared to the rest of my hand...

#27

I'm 7.4 inches middle finger to palm and my middle finger's about, holy ****, 3.5 inches???

Quote by Siganiv
Then I see my fingers aren't that long, 3,5 here aswell


Dude, my middle finger is 2.5 inches--a whole INCH shorter than yours

My hand is 6.2 inches from base of palm to the end of my middle finger.

I am jealous of everyone in this thread : (

Also, I am done growing as I am 19 years old...

Oh well though, nothing I can do of course, just have to accept the fact and decide what to do about it.

7 inches on the nose for me. The guy who got me started playing guitar noticed that I had large hands for my small frame, so that works out for me.
