    Every thing Stillhand says here is spot on. I have trigger fingers on both pinkies (too many years on pneumatic hammers) but as long as I stretch and pay attention to the tension manager, in our cases the locking of the joint (among others) is my hint to relax, address the source of tension and keep that neutral arch of my fingers ready to go. Practicing this mindset in my playing opened a whole new world. Did I mention stretching? Yes, good. The best hand finger stretching is what I call silly putty stretching. Too fast too hard and snap but go slowly, and the ensuing flexibility is a welcome surprise.
