Question bum notes

I am getting on fairly well with my guitar having had it for around 10 weeks now and every time i pick it up ilearn something new i can do with it, i am however constantly plagued with my fingers muting out adjacent strings when i try to appegiate a chord, any idea's how to keep the fleshy parts of my fingers off adjacent strings please? i have tried cocking my wrist forward but it hurts so bad i can only do it for a couple of minutes at a time and it's not always successful

Neil.

Curl your fingers more and get your thumb off the fretboard. Thumb should lay across the back of the neck

Shallow and pedantic.

This might help: But it is largely a matter of playing a while until you have control over what your fingers are doing; you haven't been playing long at all so right now you lack a lot of the fine motor control you need to really get guitar right.
