hey GT I have a problem when playing a bar chord like D on the 5th my pinky sometimes mutes the low E or I try to make sure I don't and end up messing up the B I can't just cover it up with strumming because the song is mainly single picking.
any lessons on how to help?
My thumb is always on the back of the neck btw

1) barre chords
2) I think you mean your pinky is hitting the high E? (The thinnest one)

Its probably the way your performing the barre chord.
If your index finger is slightly twisted to form the barre, the other side of your hand should be raised slightly off the fretboard.

Is your thumb in a bent position behind the neck, or is it straight? If its bent, then your pinky finger will be more likely to press against the High E.

my thumb is straight so It must be my index I'd pinky
I'm getting the hang of playing it clean now if just been playing the same riff over and over trying to keep it clean

lol. Just take a few minutes to look at how your holding the guitar, and how your holding the strings, and try adjust your hand position to avoid touching strings your not ment to.

I had the same problem when i started learning barre chords. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes alot easier
