Clinodactyly: Clinodactyly is the deviation of a finger - usually the pinky pointing to the ring finger. Therapy is generally unsuccessful as treatment, and surgery is usually required if there are functional problems. As far as guitar playing, it is unlikely to be harmful. However, the ability to play depends on the severity of the condition.
