I have flexor digitorum superficialis in my right hand but it is abscent in the left hand, meaning that my ring finger and my pinky finger on my left hand aren't independent. Since my right hand has flexor digitorum superficialis, i thought i could play a left-handed violin, but again i thought maybe that won't be a good idea since I'm right-handed.
I just want someone to tell me if i can be good at violin regardless of the missing FDS mentioned above, or if it would be a waste of time , or if i should go for the left-handed anyway.
What a missing flexor digitorum superficialis means:
Missing this muscle has very little effect on daily life. It's missing in something like 16-18% of the population, and most people will never know. The way to tell that you are missing this muscle is to hold your first three fingers straight against resistance, and flex your pinky. If your pinky does not flex, you have no flexor digitorum superficialis in that hand. If your third finger is flexed, you can flex your fourth finger to that degree.
