Subject: RE: Size DOES matter..but flexibility rules!
I really do have small hands and tiny (cocktail sausage) fingers.

I did learn to play instruments (piano - could just stretch the octave, Chopin got away with it but I could never have done; oboe - could barely cover the holes) but not well, or well enough that anyone would want to listen least of all me).

The usual answer is percussion (except I get cramp as well as blisters playing spoons).

Hammered dulcimer (which I played for a few years) is fine if (like me) you have small hands, but a bugger if (like me) you're astigmatic and have to work out where all the strings are.
