Does anyone else’s finger bend like this?
I can’t figure out if it’s genetics or football. I’m guessing football, because neither of my parents’ bend this way, but I have the bend on both hands (far more prominent on fretting hand).
I just wonder because sometimes that bend makes it hard to fret certain chords. It especially makes it difficult to do some maneuvers, such as a 2-4 slide on the G-string while simultaneously getting the 2nd fret on the high D-string with my index (see Ben’s ending to I Am a Pilgrim - right at 9:23).
Oh well. Adapt and overcome, right?
