I'm beginning to think that there are some aspects of playing a 34 inch bass that I will never master. Such as, playing in the third position, G Major Arpeggios. Especially the stretch from the 5th on the 3rd string to the sixth on the 2nd string. I can do this without issue on my 30.5 inch Gibson SG, but not on the full-scalers. I never considered my hands to be small, but clearly I must have been too optimistic on that score. So, I wanted to understand the metrics of hand size and finger length and how they map to bass playing capability. Here are some simple measurements I've just taken. The length of the middle finger of my fretting hand is: 85mm (measured from the line where it joins the wrist to the tip), the distance from where the finger joins the hand to the line of the wrist is 112mm. How does this compare with other bass players? If you can do this quick measurement of your own fretting hand and post the results (inches or mm) I would be very grateful. Also, along with the measurements, let me know how big you consider your hand to be and if you have any stretching issues on a full-scale bass.
