    Fantastic lesson, I was playing around with thumb over chord technique, as per video, with fiddle with 3 taking strings 4&5, eventually got it after a couple of hours struggling with it, then it occurred to me I could do that on a standard e shaped barre chord, using your technique to take 5 and 4 with one fiddle with work seems to with standard barre and still free up fiddle with 4, ie a 3 fiddle with E shape barre, 1 for barre 2 for shape. Are there any advantages of thumb over. Any view ??

  9. espensl says:

    How on earth do you guys get the thin E string clean with this grip? I can’t seem to get it clean, and the grip also very straining on the hand, any tips on how to achieve this with a “looser” grip?

  10. wesiscool123 says:

    @click5rox12 absolutely, you’ll have to press down harder though so it will seem alot harder, but practice makes perfect!

  11. click5rox12 says:

    @wesiscool123 thanks:) hopefully ill get it soon:) can u do it on an acoustic guitar aswell or not?

  12. wesiscool123 says:

    @click5rox12 about a week, get your hand in a comfortable position and use the side of your thumb on the E string just practice practice practice and you should be able to get it right while feeling comfy not being strained

  13. click5rox12 says:

    @wesiscool123 how long did it take you?

  14. wesiscool123 says:

    @click5rox12 press a bit harder, takes a while to get used to

    @click5rox12 Try to get a note by just using the thumb, the rest can wait.

  17. click5rox12 says:
