Rest your thumb on the 6th string (as we move forward the thumb controls the 6th, 5th and 4th strings). Rest your 3rd finger on the 1st string, your 2nd finger on the 2nd string, and your 1st finger on the 3rd string.
You are looking for a relaxed, oval shaped hand, with your thumb slightly bent and out in front of your fingers.
