I've been playing for 4 and a half years now and for a lot of solos, I like to have my thumb hanging over my neck. But that was on a Fender Strat. Now that I have a Gibson, the neck is slightly fatter so I find it harder to play like this. Should I get used to it and just improve that way or is it worth me learning to play with my thumb behind the neck?

Thanks!

Get used to it. It's better in the long run
When I heard smoking would kill me, I bought shares in Dunhill and Marlboro - Thomas Geraghty

If we don't change it, nothing will fucking change.

Just to clarify, by having my thumb hanging over I mean so I'm able to mute the 6th string with it.

Dang.....this might mean a change of technique is needed.... The thing is, I play both ways depending on what I'm playing...

Should be versatile to do it on any guitar...

You're a mod! Congrats!

Anyway, when I play, I switch between thumb over the neck and thumb behind the neck. I find that with your thumb behind the neck, you will have more reach for your finers. But with thumb over the neck, it is easier to bend.
