And it sounds to me like you're not making proper contact with the song with your thumb, remember hit the string and take your thumb out of contact as quick as possible to allow the ring of the string. Although the exact problem through just words on a screen is rather hard to see.

agreed, check you tube for some vids, that would make it easier

also, its possible you have a bad neck bow, you would need to adjust the truss rod for that, or you could just have the action set badly, take it to a guitar shop and ask them to set it up for you
