let's say i am holding down the 12th fret
on the b string. my index finger not only lays
on the b string it is lightly touch the the
string below. (in this case e)
this happens often when picking
and doing legato.

is it bad should i curve my hand more to
have my fretting hands fingers not touch any strings
above or below the notes i am playng.

thanks for the advice. cheers.

If you're touching the other strings then you're just muting them so that will only improve it.

Edit: just make sure you don't hold down the other strings so far that you actually fret them and produce an unwanted note.

Also: why the line breaks? Is this a poem?

I would place your thumb against the back of the neck instead of curving it over the top of the neck as most players do, this is the usually considered the "proper" position and would also allow for wider stretches.

Yeah, I have fond memories as a child of fapping to a porno with my close friends before sitting down for a nice relaxing evening of Runescape.

Except for chords maybe. Muting the E string whilst playing an A chord is cool with most players.
