I couldn't put it any better.andrew Ivimey wrote: ↑Sun Jan 14, 2018 12:11 pmIt seems to me that we could make too much about where a thumb goes. If it suits great, if it gets in the way then cut it off.
Quite where the digits of my left hand go, as I murder The Wind Cries Mary on a Strat, a tango on acoustic or simple doodling bluesywoos on a classical guitar my thumb finds a use and I require it go where I wish. If it won't go there we learn to accommodate our failings until, after thought and practise, a tuneful and painless compromise is reached. I could hardly start by saying there is one place and only one place my thumb must go. That way lies madness.
Too much bandwidth is being used discussing where one's thumb should or shouldn't be used. Just get on with whatever works best for the individual.
