Hi! I'm new in here. I have just recently started to practice the thumb-over-the-neck chords. I've been practicing for a week, and I have noticed great some improvements but I am still not perform the correctly. My hands are quite small (15 cm; 5.9"), and I think this is not a very big issue as I see how my fingers stretch a little more everyday, but I would like to improve this technique as faster as possible. Could anybody give some tips for it? Moreover, how minor chords are played? I am unable to ring the high E, is it necesarry to ring it or can it be muted? Thanks!
