The next step in mastering palm muting is to create accents within the riff you play. These accents occur when you lift your palm to let the strings ring. All great rock groups use this technique and your group should be no exception.

Learn to lift your mute (your palm) with as little motion as possible to create the accented chord. Also, try it with distortion to get the best idea of how drastic this small movement can sound, but also without distortion to master the subtleties of the technique.
