does hendrix use his thumb to play the bass notes? if so how?

he does. and you just put your thumb on the string! some ppl like me and hendrix seem to use our thumb alot, sometimes i use my thumb to make full barre chords, and for the g with no third chord, and the d/f sharp chord, so for you to play it you might prefer to use your other fingers and omit the thumb, its all about preference.
