i was watching one of pavel lessons when i saw how he places his thumb on his guitar neck. he almost wraps it around and lets the side of it rest on his guitar neck. i looked through different lessons form other instructors, and they all do something kinda similar to this...

I, on the other hand, let the front of my thumb rest on the middle of the guitar neck, and it kinda points towards the head of the guitar at a 45 degree angle....can this hurt my performance and ability to learn to play faster?

ill try to find a digital camera to show you all how i hold my thumb on the guitar....

if you're aiming to play fast, thumb in the middle of the neck is suggested, but if you want to get a better grip of vibrato, people sometimes wrap the thumb around the neck, it also helps you bend better too. Although i dont use that vibrato but thats just me tongue.gif
