Since it is such an important tool, we're going to dedicate this lesson to really honing in on some next level palm muting tricks and techniques in a rock context. One of the best ways to practice palm muting is to use a lot of gain, because it forces you to have solid palm muting technique to keep it sounding tight. So in this lesson we'll venture into some hard-hitting, hi-gain rock and maintain our focus on the palm muting through all of it. Let's get started!
High Gain Sound - lots of distortion, scooped mids - harder to control, not necessary for palm muting, but useful for mastering the technique.
Finding The Sweet Spot - muting location relative to bridge.
Applying and Releasing the Palm Muting.
Other Applications - palm muted arpeggiations and root note palm mutes.
Now, lets check out a short sample tune that incorporates all of these approaches and techniques!
