I only use my pinky to reach across the fretboard. Say from the 2nd fret to the 5th fret. I also use it to get octaves that are in the same position. But I hear/see all the time bassist using their pinky to go two frets higher. (1st finger 2nd fret, pinky 4th fret) But I have always found this extremely uncomfortable. I have practiced it a lot but it is still just awkard to me. Is this really a bad thing?
