Mine do, never hindered me. The only time I even really notice is with barre chords because I had to adjust my finger position slightly to play every note clean since if I put my finger directly on its side I sometimes don’t get enough pressure for the E/A strings


christopherbrian

Ohhhhh that’s why this troubles me! Never connected it.

Bro I was with my mom watching movies last night there is no way you fucked her


fedfan101

You aren't my daddy


zero_cool702

That's the real question here.


solidus1st

Phone strapped to head, picture mode with delay timer set to 10 seconds. Job done. The real question is, were his fingers ever straight to begin with.. Does he even know, can he even remember?


zero_cool702

That's the real question here.


firestoneaphone

oh man here we go again


BenadrylTumblercatch

I think he used head to do it


toothpasteonyaface

Google glasses are back baby !


PositivelyIndiana

Mine do


Ruben_001

Yes. It's not uncommon. Probably the same for your toes.


DaSpurdOfStonkStreet

Yes. Nobody’s fingers are straight. I learned this from spending countless hours in art school figure drawing and studying the anatomy of the hand (they are still tough to draw). We think our fingers are straight because it’s a shortcut our mind takes to describe what something looks like. Just like you think a sidewalk tile is a square even though from your perspective it’s really a trapezoid. Short answer: All fingers are at leas slightly curved.


cryptocronix

Wrong, both me and my wife have perfectly straight fingers. I find OP's pic slightly disturbing.


Triumphxd

I’m pretty sure you’re just trolling here but why are you trying to contradict someone who has stated they have deeply studied human hand shapes by falsely stating all of you and your wives fingers are straight. It’s just very strange behavior.


cryptocronix

Not trolling, just telling my experience. Our fingers are straight, with no bend detected. I don't care if i get downvoted, i'm being honest. Maybe my wife and I are the straight-fingered freaks?


Triumphxd

Every digit of your fingers are precisely straight? I'm not suggesting they are less straight than OP, hes an outlier but look closely... If they are literally measurably straight then yeah you are an outlier.


FTDMFR

Mine do. It has never affected my playing.


RChamy

I thought everyone was like this


marsupialsales

Yes, but mine were bound and molded by my parents, who are both semi-aquatic.


BadscrewProjects

Get him, he's a mutant!!!


mrbrown1980

Ever seen John 5’s hands?


CatKungFu

Er, no I don’t have bunches of bananas for hands.


NormanRB

I'm both double jointed in my thumbs and to a degree both index fingers but not from playing. Many years ago (think eons) I was in great shape and could do two finger pushups. Now... not so much... It's Hell getting old.


321slash

Looks like the strings have been bending you instead of the other way around


eg8nine

Ye, both my pointers do. Not really sure that it hinders my guitar playing ability from what I can tell


Somasong

Yup. Doesn't effect me much if at all.


VipkoVski

Mine do, it's pretty common I think. I don't have any problems to play, so don't worry.


GuitarJazzer

Mine do. But I don't know how to attach a photo in a comment. I think it's fairly normal to see this when your hands are in this position. I read an interview with Larry Carlton where he said his right hand was like this from years of holding a pick, but IMHO it's just the way his fingers are.


DangerReserve

It’s not from playing guitar, it’s from soaking them in cider… Hehe 😜


MyUsernameIsNotCool

They age like that when you use your fingers a lot from like sitting at the computer or any other type of hobby/work. Also we get weaker in our pinkies because of this, brain take short cut only using 2 fingies.


cryptocronix

My fingers are perfectly straight. I am a computer developer of over 25 years, plus i play my ps console daily.


jefhenjr3

My son’s fingers look like that. He said he developed them from his constant use of his Nintendo Gameboy….


homejib

Yup!


Rudyjax

My left middle finger does but that’s because I broke it at 13.


adorablesexypants

Yep! I only find a problem with acoustic, electric I have no problem with Barre chords.


popgoesyour

Yes. Hasn’t changed anything that I can tell


frankybling

yep… even worse to be honest and no it’s never been an issue, I do get a weird callous shape on my left index which I think is because if Barre chords but it’s just a callous.


re_de_unsassify

I suspect it’s common


larrykeithfrick

Mine do. Also pretty helpful in hitting the notoriously hard to find g-spot. Or so it seems from gf’s groans of xtc! 🤣🤣


bonzai2010

Mine do


Icommentor

A little bit. Also, my pinky on my fretting hand turns inward while bending. So when I hold the neck the tip of my pinky bumps into the tip of my ring finger. I don't care, played for a years and I still play well enough to get paid every so often.


[deleted]

Dude slays


Nachosaretacos

Almost exactly the same as mine.


Ironrogue

Yes, almost all of them. Wish I'd started learning when I was younger! 👍🏻🤟🏻😎


Sockher10

My index and middle finger on my fretting hand


gratefuldad1956

I do, as do several members of my immediate family.


badmongo666

Yup. Plus my pinkies turn in about 20 degrees on the last knuckle. Index finger not a hindrance for me, but my pinky gets caught against my ring finger a little sometimes (I'm not good, but it's not because of my fingers).


kaotikmindz

Yep and I've always wondered why. My little toes are curved as well


motorhead84

Probably, but mine do not.


Frog_Diarrhea

Only people with butt cancer. Sorry


Uncleknuckle36

I’ve been playing guitar for 60+ years and I always believed that my middle fingers curved this way from playing the instrument. I’ve also noticed the index finger on my right hand seems rotated very slightly to the right possible due to finger style playing?


Charles_Leviathan

Yup, my middle fingers practically point in opposite directions. It was never a problem for playing.


marshal1257

Mine do. They have my whole life. Never bothered me at all.


ghostshizzle85

Yeah and it gets really weird when you go down the rabbit hole. If you Google it you might find out a few things about yourself and the things you do that you may have never noticed but supposedly it all goes back to fetal development and we're a "type" of people. Good shit...sort of.


Zephyr2456

Both my index fingers curve like that and have since birth. My right middle finger curves like that due to an injury.


ChristianGeek

I’m more interested in the difference in length between your index and middle fingers! My fingers don’t curve, but my index fingers end about halfway up the nail on my middle fingers.


blacklodgeprog

Did you play a lot of video games growing up?


iamyouarewethereyet

Only the middle finger on my left hand. Knuckle feels like a bad hinge as a result. Painful, but I still play anyways.


llb4eva

I have crooked pinkies never really thought much about it.. then when I did my ancestry DNA I found out that my dad's mom's Maiden name meant crooked bone finger or pinky we had no idea our crooked pinkies were hereditary lol! Maybe yours is too!


AloriKk

Yea


Exact_Bar5084

this gon be on r/guitarcirclejerk 💀


blorbschploble

Hey. We’re related.


Dr-Daveman

Me! Pinkies tho. My Dad has the same.


dlham11

This is normal, the real trouble comes in with crooked elbows.


walker544

Ask Roberta

CompetitiveControl36
