    oh shit I'm so stupid today... SURE!! I thought you meant his right thumb.....
    yeah he uses it a lot. especially with the red 335 which has a really tiny neck, I'm sure he'd be able to fret both E and A strings

    thats one of the clips I had in mind. on some chords he is probably just dampening, but i'm pretty sure he also frets a lot with his thumb. ballad in a trio setting kind of calls for somewhat bigger chords than usually...
    using a chord chart of darn that dream you should be able to figure out most of the chords he plays.
