My first post here.
I have picked up the guitar again ater a few years off. I was never any good anyway, somehow I just didnt get it. I think I was always looking to play lead without getting the basics and being unable to play a basic rythym and studying scaleas and theory too much to begin with.

Anyway, this time although I have two nice electric guitars I am going to stick with the acoustic for a while at least.
I came across this Stefan Grosman video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwUEHBmrWkc and made the mistake of thinking it was going to be easy, anyway I would like to learn to play this.

My basic question is can you advise a good exercise to try and learn the thumb base technique and being able to play the other notes over it. At the moment my thumb stops as soon as I go off the beat with the lead.
