Default After several years, now trouble with a simple G chord

Ok, I got four years under my belt and I feel like things are going well.

Plenty of live performances, I feel like my rhythm is pretty good etc etc etc....but never did I think the G chord would all of the sudden be my problem?!?!?!?

SO....now that I am trying to add fancy embellishments to improve my playing, or lets say, make it more interesting, Im having issues. When I play a G chord in either of the two popular positions, I cant hammer on and off the A string without whichever finger is playing the low E string muting it. I know the issue is to get the finger on the low E string out of the way but when I do, its a SUUPER AKWARD position, even looks super akward compared to other guitarists I see.

Thoughts??
