Hey All, I've noticed that lately when practicing I've stopped using my ring finger quite as much and my pinkie has taken over. For example when I play a G on the E string fretting with my index, if i play an octave above on the D string in quick succesion i will now fret with my pinky. I may have just imagined this, and that is quite likely, but i think i may have heard on an earlier post that double bassists don't fret notes with thier ring finger either. My explanation for me ditching my pinkie in such situations is that I don't have to rotate my wrist nearly as much when using my pinkie. Problem is though that my brain is somewhat confused between the battle for fretspace between the two fingers and seems to alternate them somewhat randomly at times. Is this bad practice or just normal behaviour?!
