Proper fretting is only made possible by the counter-pressure provided by your thumb. Make sure your thumb is working for you by providing a solid foundation at the back of the guitar neck against which your fingers can press the strings down to the fretboard. Study the proper positioning carefully, and check yourself periodically to make sure you are staying on track.
