    Dan, you're kinda putting it in the wrong place, at least from how the first pic looks. That thumb should be close to under your pointer finger. If you're playing in 5th position, it should be under around the 5th fret. Moving it up that high is putting MORE pressure on the wrist, I would think.

    Its definitely more comfortable, at the moment i have my thumb behind the 4 fret (pictured) CD197CFE-5881-4C50-9037-E5BE3488AECA.jpeg as the stretch to the third fret is a bit uncomfortable
