Hello, Michael! I have a question about the thumb position. I am learning to shift to 5th position, my thumb is under the fingerboard when I am on G, D, and A string. Would I need to put my thumb under the fingerboard when I am playing the E string? Or should I say is my hand posture correct if my thumb is not underneath it? Thanks in advance for answering!
Hey there yinmui! Ok personally GDA would be good if you can keep your thumb under the fingerboard. But for E string, well i have relatively small fingers so my thumb will come out under the fingerboard and instead lie right next to it,literally touching the fingerboard to give myself a greater extension. It might be abit uncomfortable but after awhile you get used to it! Hope this helps!:)
