Won't be too long before they grow, just practise like one CAMF until they do. I'm pretty lucky to have long fingers

I had problems with F when I was around 10. You'll get over it. It doesn't really have anything to do with your finger size.

You have to stretch dude. Just keep at it and your fingers will be super flexible, so even when your fingers do get longer. You will have an unrivaled stretching span.

my guitar teacher is ten years older than me, yet his hands and fingers are a lot smaller. he is an amazing player.. he can shred, play chord changes in quarter notes at a good speed, and just about anything else you can imagine on a guitar.. so although it will be tougher for you.. just practice, stretch, and work out your fingers. best of luck!

bend your wrist in a manner that allows you to reach, but gives you carpel tunnel (sp?) in the process


EDIT: Assuming you just started, it is hard to press down on the strings. It just takes practice...

get a tape-measure right now, and measure your fingers and tell us how long they are. i'll then tell you how long my fingers are, and prove to you that your fingers aren't the problem.

Exactly It is fun at big parties on a big screen etc, but it's when people begin to brag about being great at it. You just ask them ''Please do tell me, can you get a well-paid career in Guitar Hero???'' That always shuts them up.

I'm good at both GH and real so I just rape everybody
#29
the length of your fingers realllllllllllllllly doesn't matter. just like everything else in guitar with practice you can do anything.
#30
1st of all, you're not really allowed on here are you? if your twelve?
+2nd, I started playing when i was twelve and had trouble. it doesnt have to do with hand size, more so how experienced you are with guitar. My fingers havent grown much since I was twelve and i can now reach all the things i couldnt reach then.
#32
I can't reach to orange thanks (or even reach all the way around the neck actually) but I'm fine with it. It's how you use them instead of how long they are, they'll grow (hopefully, I'm like fourteen now).
#33
Cool so that means my fingers will grow!!!woohoo.Although ive been playing violin for 7 years now.
