Thanks for all the help.
I'm going to try playing with my pinky.
It's a lot smaller then my other fingers (I have fairly fat fingers but my little finger is really thin and is a lot shorter then the other three, i've no idea why because everyone else in my family has an ordinary little finger).
Playing with my fourth finger instead of the third definatly helps (even though i'm getting a ton of fret buss, i've got to train that pinky to do what I tell it to!).
Plus, the advice that Rob gave really helped. My thumb was always pointing towards the nut instead of perpendicular to the neck.
I've changed my technique and it doesn't hurt anymore.
Great help. Thanks again.
