Muting 2

Animated Muting 2 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This exercise is from the Core Skills section on Muting.

Now we will hold a G major Barre chord (using the E major chord 'shape' held at the 3rd fret). Use regular down / up strums and alternate between playing the whole chord normally (4 strums) and muted (4 strums).

This is a very common rhythmic technique. It relies on muting and we'll take a further look at that soon. For now practice and make sure that you can switch between the full chord and muted chord sounds fluidly. Once you can do that, let's move on to the next exercise.
