This is normal for a not trained pinky, if you want to fully controle it you should do pinky excercises!

Some excercises I did :
(Do it on all strings)

7h8p7h8p7 etc with your pinky and ring finger
7h9p7h9p7 etc with your pinky and middle finger
Just think of any variation you can imagine,
Start slow and stop when it hurts!

This is also a great excercise for independent fingers
5h7p6h8 and 8p6h7p5

Hopes this help some biggrin.gif

It will take sometime to fully controle your pinky, maby even months, just gradually build it up! In the beginning it's seems difficult but after a while you start to feel large improvements, which is really motivating biggrin.gif

I like to set my metronome around 105 bpm and keep increasing it and do licks with a variety of patterns like this one on a EVH Brown sound type of lead setting.

E-8-9-11-9-8----9-8-------8------------------8----
B--------------11-----11-9---11-9-8--8-9-11------
G-----------------------------------------------------
