    Rizla---see the first page

    Francious70---I have 2 namez because I use ibreathe @ $kool. They $py on people and can get pa$$wordz, etc... This is not me being paranoid, this has happened to me and other students. So, I don't want them getting my info, ya dig? In like 4 weeks, I won't have to use madhatter@skool anymore(summer vacation).

    Thanks for the awesome response, and thanks Bongo Boy for the spreadsheet. I can feel my guitar playing ability slowly leaving as I am typing this...

    Peace, yo.

    A = 10.5cm (4.13inch)
    B = 10.1cm (3.97inch)
    C = 9cm (3.54inch)

    I guess I have no excuse for not being able to fret those chords.

    What about the fact the tip of my index finger (not my pointer finger - but the one to the right of my pinky on my left hand) was dislocated when I was 14, and it healed, so it curves in slightly ???

    But you're well within one standard deviation of the average, except for dimension B. So...do you have any musical interests or were you serious about the hand-size research thing? Did you actually find this thread using a web search? That's kinda funny!

    Bit late to this party... but

    A=11.7cm
    B=10.5cm
    C=8.8cm

    Seems to be on the large side so that removes one of my excuses.. but could explain why I'm so clumsy ;-(

    I wonder what Hendrix would have measured up like, his hands make it look he's playing one of those 1/2 size toy Strats....

    A=4 5/8"

    B=4 1/8"

    C=3 1/2"

    I forgot.......that's a left(smaller) hand.


    Is that the status quo hand?
