I got the BEST present for my birthday...fixed my "locking" pinkie! This has plagued me for years. I've always had to rearrange music for "no pinkie" as my little finger would often "lock" or just collapse when fretting a note.
Turns out I'm double jointed in both pinkies and this little gizmo solves the problem.

You have to be fitted by a hand specialist...can't just buy one off-the-shelf, but if anyone else has this problem...here's the solution :)

Very interesting. Glad it works for you. I'm sure having any finger, including the pinkie, collapse would be very frustrating.

Play on!

ALWAYS blame the "equipment" :)

Wow. So much to say and so little that's fit for print...
