When piece requires fretting 5 independent notes, some chords are really hard to fret. The common situation is when you need to reach octave from bass note on G string and have still three fingers free.
It sometimes causes pain when I try to twist thumb too much. I know everything takes time, but with correct technique it should be accessible. What approaches could help here?
One thing I noticed is that fretting thumb first and pulling string a bit towards edge makes this chord a bit easier. I'm not sure if this should be part of my technique.
