Re: Fretting on Fretting
That's not small (I have the same size, and I play an OM). The interesting thing about this value is that it is obviously measured on the palm with outstretched fingers, and that is not how you grip the fretboard, hopefully.

There is a nice instruction video where Mike Marshall demonstrates this, just can't find it right now...
