yeah as people have said , Buckethead and Paul Gilbert have big hands.

But there are some amazing players with small hands, Michael Romeo and Shawn Lane both have/had very small hands.

Ive also got pretty large hands , i can do a chord stretch of

D-7---
A-5---
E-1----

in the middle of a song with no struggle.

Looks like Jeff Beck has little baby hands compared to Vai and Berry.

Paul Gilbert has enormous hands, probably about 11 inches

Either way, I don't think bananas should be placed in such proximity to an ass

I disagree. Bananas and ass are like peaches and cream.

Kurt Cobain had small hands and was short, but he was spectacular. Prince has small ahnds and is like 5'2". Paul Westerberg had normal hands. I guess if you're a lead guitarist it's better to have large hands, but it doesn't matter the size if you play rhythm.

Kurt Cobain was most certainly not spectacular. He even said he was a lame guitarist.

That's so photoshopped.


I doubt it. You can clearly distinguish between his little finger, and whatever the hell is on it. Slide perhaps?

Joe Satriani actually has quite normal hands for an Italian like myself. We have about the same hand size.

Angus had small hands, same with david gilmour.

Come again?

I'm pretty sure that's just an extension. You can even see where it gets darker on his fingers.

I envy my brother for having huge hands. He's not very tall, and the only reason I can think of for having such enormous hands is because he played handball when he was a teenager. His fingers are long and skinny, what most people would call "pianist's fingers" (those bastards get all the merit), and although he can REALLY stretch them, they're clumsy, as in I-can't-keep-a-string-properly-fretted clumsy. Either way, it's a waste of good hands.

On the other hand, this girl I know has the shortest, stubbiest fingers I've seen on a teenage girl, but plays the piano like a mofo.

It's also an extender on his pinky. His fingers are long, but not as long as that looks.

Afro-Americans like Mr. Hendrix generally have larger hands ( for better grip on their drum sticks/basketballs/fried chicken ) where as asians like Mr. Li usually have smaller, more flexible hands ( better from doing finger gymnastics.........if you know what I mean. ). White folks have hands also.


oh my god . you're going to hell

and asians don't have smaller hands for gynastics, silly.
it's so they can assamble those tiny components in your amps and effects
