I myself have average fingers and average sized hands. Which is a real pity, I always feel that I could have done more should God give me bigger hands and longer fingers. What about u people?

You're missing a category...my are long and muscular!
I like that type of fingers. Do u play the cello? If that's what u have, and if u've got strong hands as well, I bet you'll sound lovely on a cello! :lol:

I have long and thing fingers, my middle being about 4.2 inches long.
Oh my, Becky! :eek: This I can only imagine...Trying hard to imagine :blink: , mine's only 3.2 . :angry:

Those aren't my fingers! My fingers are short! Really short! Really, REALLY short!!!

Hmmm, looks like those are Quavarion's fingers.

Here's my right hand...

...I'll leave the cello playing to cellists...it's all I can do to practice the violin and viola...even my poor mandolin has been set aside for the time being...

Wow! You have a scorpion?! My brother used to have a Malayan Whip scorpion. :unsure: He has a total of 34 animals in his room right now. He had to remove all of his furniture including his bed. He sleeps on the floor! He has a snake that is soon to be 8.5 feet long and eat rabbits, and many other creepy things... :(

No, that's not my scorpion! That was from my vacation in Miami. A performer picked me to hold that African Scorpion, which I thought was strange since I probably had more entomology experience than anyone else in the audience!

The scorpion almost hit my threshold for creapiness, though.

Mine are fat sausage-like fingers. I just remembered... About 1989 I saw my ex brother in law for the first time in many years.He just happened to walk into my favorite cafe.. Anyway I had my new very expencive mandolin with me, (he did'nt know I was a musician ) and I asked him if I could play for him . "YES !" he said enthusiastically. I played a real quick, difficult to play, Bluegrass piece. When I finished ,his eyes were wide .He took my left hand and looked closely at it, and said " When was the last time you thought about your dad?" ' I have'nt thought about him for ... months? Why do you ask?' I answered. He said" Your dad never played that fast ,but you have the exact same fat sausage-like fingers as he did!" My father was a multi-instrumentalist (tenor banjo,F hole guitar mandolin,organ) And had played for decades in a Canadian Legion band. He died when I was 23 and the encounter with Patrick was sure an eye opener! Sorry. I've got to figure out how to shorten my stories...
