I've been playing for about 5 months and I just noticed that I don't use my pinky on my left (neck) hand at all. I tried to see if i could but the thiung is i cant! My ring finger always comes down with it. Wierd thing is when I put my ring finger down on a fret my pinky doesn't have to move with it. It hasnt really been a real obstacle to my playing but I dont feel like a "real" bassist because I cant use the finger. Does anyone know any excercises to "fix" this? Thanks P.S.: Obviously, im self taught cause an instructor wouldve caught that real quick.
