Pinky Locking up

Im going back to the basics with my vibrato after realizing that my pinky is locking up in the knuckle closest to the nail. If it helps i use a combination of wrist/arm, and im working on trying a little finger vibrato. Any suggestions?

See a hand doctor; it is imperative to take care of your fingers.  You may have stenosing tenosynovitis, commonly called trigger finger.  If a doctor immediately recommends injections and/or surgery, see another specialist; it is best to start with the least invasive, least painful treatment, and work up from there.  When I had this condition, one treatment of dexamethasone via iontophoresis fixed me up.  In the meantime, it won't hurt to try hot water soaks to see if that helps.  Good luck!

 Fingers do not contain muscles (other than arrector pili). The muscles that move the finger joints are in the palm and forearm. The long tendons that deliver motion from the forearm muscles may be observed to move under the skin at the wrist and on the back of the hand.

I have seen some exercises on line for improving mobility of that finger joint that we use for vibrato; I will find a couple and post a link.  If you do not have a permanent problem bending that joint, it's a different matter...
