Hey guys, I'm hoping some of you may be able to help me. I'm trying to master the thumb over hendrix style barre chords but I have child sized hands so I can never get it quite right enough to free up my pinky finger. Is there a trick to this? Or do I just need to suck it up and stretch or something. I've been at it for about a year now and still no dice. Thanks in advance anyone who gives this a look.

Welcome to UG!

To be honest, you don't need to get very much of your thumb over the E string. Its a pretty easy string to fret. Maybe you could try and position your hand differently. I'm just taking a shot in the dark so hopefully it helped.
this might sound strange, but my left hand is longer than my right hand. i think it's a result of just playing the guitar over time.
