    A=12.5cm B=11.3cm C=8.8cm
    Also, if I spread my hand out on a table, I measure 25.9cm from the tip of my thumb to the tip of my pinky.

    A= 10.5
    B= 9
    C= 8

    we need to figure out some measurements from famous guitarists, Satch etc. it would be interesting to compare.

    A = 10.4 cm
    B = 8.8 cm
    C = 8 cm

    I used to think my hands were "too small" but I am happy to be proven completely wrong, even if I no longer believe that anyway.

    Mine are:
    A: 11.6cm
    B: 9.6cm
    C: 9.0cm

    I met Richie Kotzen once after a gig (I had one (or two) too many Jack D's) and compared hand sizes (poor bloke was probably scared of a big drunk irishman!) Got to say his fingers were not that longer, but they where VERY lean.

    I mean, its not the length, its what you do with them!!!

    (btw he was demoing his new Cornford and it was amazing)

    When I met Satch the other day, I noticed his hands aren't all that big...He's a rather diminutive figure...

    A - 9.7cm (3 and 3/4 inches)
    B - 7.4cm (3 inches)
    C - 7.4cm (3 inches)

    I'm 15 years old though. And a girl. So I'm guessing mine would be a bit smaller!

    Well , what about jimi hendrix one ?

    Since he is not alive to post on the forum ...lol , so does anyone know about lengths of his fingers ?

    All i know about him was that he had LOOOOOONG fingers , really long.(He could wrap the whole neck of his fender with the top of the thumb !)

    And mine ?

    C = 7.8 cm

    This thread has been running for over two YEARS. I think that says a lot about...something. Anyway, it looks like it's about time for me to step in and do the statistical analysis one more time and update our charts and graphs, etc.


    Now if all those who have posted their dimensional data could now go back and add in their top alternate picking speeds, I can correlate the data...
