    What to do when your thumb is too short to wrap around the neck in order to dampen strings 5 & 6??

    Hi,

    You’ll have to play it without thumb.

    This will require some refingering, but still possible.

    There are small benefits to each technique. If you can’t do it at least that’s one less thing to work on 🙂

    Sorry I misread this as playing with the thumb. If so you need to refinger it.

    As you’re clearly asking this is about damping. If you can’t reach to dampen you simply just have to be more careful with your strumming to not hit those low strings.
