on barre chords jimi/frusciante style ( thumb over ) i cant get all the strings to sound.

either the high e gets muted or i cant put enough pressure on the low e when i correct the high problem.

its ok for songs that only need a few notes hit, but on chords that every note needs to ring its really annoying.

any guides on this style ?

try forgetting about the thumb for a bit and work on the top bits, then add in your thumb later.

...do a normal barre chord instead? it gives you the same sound.

I never barre with my thumb over... Are you playing on electric? I play on acoustic and it's a little harder to hold all the strings down for me. I use that grip master thing to strengthen my fingers but i don't know if that would really affect much if you are using barre chords.
