Top 10 Guitarists with Small Hands/Fingerszxm I remember back in the days when I started to learn guitar I saw a lot of people complaining about they had short fingers/small hands. They wanted some large hands, long fingers. Some almost gave up playing. But an average size of guitar matches with almost every person's finger/hand size. No matter the size. Especially if you are talking about electric guitars. Cause electric guitar usually have thinner neck.
Anyway, having small fingers doesn't matter. Unless you have tiny fingers like Chucky from Child's Play. Now people may argue most great lead guitarists or shredders are tall and have longer fingers. But actually there are great shredders with small fingers.
So, these are some the guitarists with small hands or short fingers. They can play guitar too. Cause not everybody has fingers like Buckethead or Steve Vai.
