Before posting here, I have searched the net but could not find any related posts. I have been attempting to play guitar for a few years now. While I am a total amateur, right from the time I started fretting, I realized that the callus on my pinky is in fact developed on far right from the center.
Invariably what it means is the right corner end of my pinky tip (not the center) is hitting the strings. This seems to be what I have naturally developed. When I used to attend classes, it never occurred to me to ask this to the tutor, but today I am wondering if it’s normal?
Is it normal or there’s something fundamentally wrong with the way my pinky tip gets positioned on the strings? I think the reason it happens could be that I have a short pinky (or may be not enough muscle strength in thumb) and it naturally tends to hit the strings at an angle rather than straight at center of tip.
I am making a conscious attempt to see if my pinky tip center can hit the strings but it looks like it’s not so easy. It puts unwanted strain on the base of my fingers then.
