Palm Muting is a very popular technique found in many styles of guitar playing, and is a must know technique for any guitarist. Jon explains how to execute this technique by placing the side of his right hand on the bridge of the guitar right where the strings make contact with the saddles of the bridge, and then picking the strings. When performing this technique, the correct place on the bridge is very small, so you can hear if you are doing it correctly or not by the tone of the guitar. If your hand is too far back, the tone sounds normal, if you are too far forward, the strings sound dead, but when you are in the correct place, the sweet spot, the strings still ring out, but are slightly dampened. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com. Palm Muting is a playing technique for guitar and bass guitar, executed by placing the side of the picking hand very close to the bridge, and then picking the strings while the damping is in effect.
