At first I want to apologise my english. I hope you guys understand me!

So... My playing is quite good on every string except the lowest (low e). When playing, let's say, the d-string, I rest my palm/wrist on some strings (mainly a and e) and the body of the guitar. Also the side of my thumb touches the strings a bit.

But when playing the lowest string there's no strings where I could rest my palm/thumb. That's why my hand turns "counterclockwise", like turning a door knob. My thumb comes closer to me and my palm starts to point a little bit more down. That isn't normal for what I know...

So what should I do? Where/how should I hold my picking hand when playing the lowest string?

Ps.: Sorry if I made two threads about this. I had some problems submitting it : /
