The Mute Button

We learned some palm muting earlier in the book so now we are going to learn some other ways of muting strings.  For example if we grab a C chord we could actually mute the sixth string just by moving our third finger over a little bit.

Another way to mute strings is with your right hand. Just slap your right hand down stop the strings from vibrating and you are good.

You can also relax pressure on your left hand while you are playing a chord which will mute some of the strings.  If  you flatten your left hand out, you can mute all of them.

Muting can be designated in tablature or standard notation, as well.
