Muris...... I cant do it. I dont have a big enough hand to have my Thumb play the 10th Fret low e..... I have never used my thumb to do that and I dont think that I could. I am not a bad guitar player but was wonder if I should skip that or what?
Thanks

Trust me,you can. smile.gif
My girlfriend has really small hand and she plays with thumb on classical guitar,nylon string.
Using of thumb is really great tool but needs practicing just like everything else.
Give it some time and you will NOT regret. smile.gif

You could practice some Hendrix, he used his thumb for the bass note often.

and just practice some bar chords using your thumb on the E string, seems a bit strange to begin with and I found the thumb getting a little sore (mainly due to a slight nick I had in it from work sad.gif ) but it didnt take long after lots and lots of practice smile.gif
