Palm Muting And Syncopation
 image

In this tutorial you’re going to learn a technique called palm muting for fingerstyle guitar. Palm muting in fingerstyle is used all the time to make the melody stand out more.

We'll also add syncopation, which is another way of separating the bass notes from the melody.
