 Pinky problems...
Author: Erin :) 
Date:   1999-09-20 23:54

After I have been playing for a while, my pinkies begin to lock up at the middle joint, making it difficult to use them. It is also painful if I continue playing without taking a break. Does this happen to any of you? Is there anything that can be done to correct this? My professor says that it is probably because I keep them pretty much straight when playing, instead of slightly curved. Unfortunatly, if I curve them, I can't reach the keys at all. (my hands are fairly small and my fingers are short... everything is a reach for me!) Thanks for any info on this subject!
