06 - muting technique
In this lesson we’re going to focus on left hand muting. Muting is one of the most essential techniques.
One of the reasons to mute string 6 whilst playing a chord from string 5 is to prevent unwanted noises.
- use exercise 2 to practice the muting technique
- practice with a distorted sound, because the ‘unwanted’ noises will reveal themselves
- check the quality of the muting technique by playing the strings one by one
- Do you hear unwanted noises? Figure out where it’s coming from. Is there a string not muted properly? Which string is it…
07- string transition
In this lesson we’re going to check the final technique: string transitions whilst playing power chords.
08 – sliding & jumping
In this lesson we’re going to focus on the chord transitions on the same strings. There are two ways to do this: jumping & sliding.
You can use the drum beat to practice the exercise.
