This is topic from ancient Josh video.
Thumb Hammer Pluck video. I am attempting Variation 1. How does one stretch the fingers? Josh lays index across the 9 fret board for pluck E. I mute all the strings in doing so. I have the tip of my #1 index jammed the 4th string 9th fret otherwise I mute all the strings trying to lay across 9th fret… Josh appears to have an innate ability to put pressure on only part of finger needed to fret the string. Might there be an exercise? Or explanation on how to effectively thumb open A, hammer octave A, and pluck 9 fret E without muting strings with either index #1 or pinky #4 fingers.?
