Hi, I am brand new to bass guitar, I started playing last week after I had a lesson at my college. The problem is that I have this condition that affects some of my joints in my body, including my ingers. The main way that it affects them is by making them bend back at the end as if there was no bone, but thats not the problem. The problem is that my little finger does not move down onto the neck of the guitar smoothly, it 'clicks' and therefore slams down instead of gradually moving down like the rest of my fingers, also it does not point straight, and usualy occupies the same position ont he guitar as the finger next to it (I hope this makes sense). Anyway, is this going to be a permanent problem, or will my fingers eventually adjust, or is it possible to play without the little finger? Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks.
