So in all of my years of playing guitar, for some reason, this is something I've never looked into. Normally, when playing power chords, I use my ring finger to fret the 5th (and octave in this situations). I've always seen players do that, but also using their pinky instead. So recently, in the midst of what I would call reinventing my technique (and most aspects of my playing) from the ground up, I decided to mess around with using my pinky. So far, while it seems weird because it's my hand learning a new way of fretting, I almost feel my fretting hand, I don't know, more relaxed? I'm going to keep at it and see, because I also am seeing how I move.my hand around, can change positions any better/worse, etc. What say you, SSOers? Which is your preference? Any pros/cons to either you can see?
