While exercising my pinky at playing the guitar I noticed a huge problem which I am not able to find on the internet. My pinky kind of cracks when trying to bend it from its flat state. I tested it on my friends and actually many of them have the same problem. My instructions were to straighten their pinky finger and simply bend it without moving the other fingers.

Here is a video of me exercising and about in the middle of it you can see my pinky finger cracking and bending really fast.

Is there any chance/way I can overcome this syndrome?

  • The same thing happened to me and I resolved it by turning into a left handed. I used my left hand instead of my right in almost everything, that really helped, but it takes a while. Nov 30 '18 at 5:03
  • @user27223 Do I understand you correctly? You used your left hand at everything except guitar and the problem with your left pinky reduced? Or did you really switch to a left-handed guitar?
