Hi everyone, I have a question for you long time bassists here. First let me admit that for a guy, i have small hands. I have the hardest time getting my pinkie finger to cover that 4th fret. I'm still working on getting it stretched over there, but i have to say, it's not coming easy. So my question is this: Can a bass player play with 3 fingers and not use the pinkie and become a decent player, or am i just wasting my time? keep in mind that i'm not trying to be the next John Myung, it's just a hobby for me. Thanx for any help you can give. Oh, and i'll keep working on stretching those fingers.
