Never having played or particularly listened to this song, I grabbed a guitar and found the fretting the Gm6 with second for low G, third and pinky was extremely natural and easy. Made a very smooth transition to the Bm because the first finger was free and ready to reach for the barre. If you play the low G with your thumb, what fingers do you use for the other two strings? I just tried it, and found the transition of the thumb from over the neck to behind the neck to support the Bm barre chord extremely awkward, but I am playing on a 1 3/4" neck. Mind you I learned classical guitar first, and never play thumb over the top, except to damp the E string sometimes, so a bad example.
