Thumb on the E string

If you havent used the thumb much it will take a while to get used to

NO WRONG!

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT use your thumb.

It's a barre chord, think of it as a big power chord, you're supposed to use your index finger to fret more than one string at a time, by pushing it flat on the fretboard.

Unless someone can bend their finger in a way humanly impossible, the top E string will not be open.

I... have no idea how you'd fret that. I'd say use the thumb, but mine's too big to wrap around the neck properly without snapping it...


Edit: You could always use your right hand to fret the B string as well, then blow on the strings. I dunno, maybe that would produce a tone more suited for the song.

You can do either. No one will really be able to hear the high e note anyway.

thumb on the E string. or just play the chord without the E string as i do it and it'll still sound good.

I second that; the highest note is always the one I notice first. Luff high pitches.

i actually find it possible to play that chord using standard barre chord shape just pushing it up and trying not to hit the e. its uncomfortable but it works.

The chord is FMaj7. Therefore the open E is important to play. So either play the open E string and no thumb, or learn to use your thumb.
#16
If you bend your index finger you should be able to barre across the 1st fret and still leave the high e string open

Seriously, you can reccomend him not to play the bass note, but it's not OK for me to point out the fact that most people wont be able to tell if you don't play the highest one? Hypocritical faggotry.

^ how do you do that ?!?


I just bend it to make more of a claw kind of shape so that I'm only touching the strings with the 2nd part of my finger (from the 2nd knuckle towards the tip)
It's kind of hard to explain like this, I'll take a photo when I get home and post it (if I remember).

The root note is doubled an octave higher so the tonality of the chord won't change, the open E is what marks the chord out as a maj7 and there's only one so you have to play it.
