    Your hands learn to stretch, so get used to playing scales with proper fingering.
    (Ie: index for 1, middle for 2, ring finger for 3, pinky for 4 & 5)
    Make sure you have your grip correct too, a lot of people feel more comfortable with the Tom Delong way of playing by having your grip swallow the back of the neck - don't do it. Have your thumb placed in the middle and your hand cupping beneath the neck to allow your other digits to stretch.

    Eventually you'll have good muscle memory and your hands will start to get a wider range of notation.

    What if I put my thumb near the bottom so my finger can reach the top strings easier?

    acceptable, as long as you're not cupping.

    You may want to look for a thinner neck too.
