I realised that I can stretch over seven frets from my index finger to my pinky, starting at the 4th fret. It used to kill me to stretch five.

And you?

Starting from first fret I get get to the 7th, but I can only cleanly fret the 6th.

Taking the piss out of Americans is like bullying retards, it's unashamedly one-sided but extremely gratifying.

Well maybe you just have small hands. Or unflexible ones. If its the latter you can improve the flexibility with practice over time.

Same, I can get first to eighth if I fret one with my thumb.

Right from the pink to the stink.

Or...alternatively, 1-7th fret. But it hurts like hell and is pretty useless. I find that when I need to stretch most is during jazz stuff and that's more like weird stretching than massive stretching.

Fret 1 to 6 clean. It kind of hurts a little after a while.
