Palm Muting 11

Animated Palm Muting 11 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This exercise is from the Core Skills Section on Palm Muting.

So far our palm muting examples have been very rock and metal based. This is partly due to the fact that these genres are heavily reliant on such things as powerchords, barre chords and palm muting. However, now your hands are more used to palm muting techniques and moving between various barre chords / powerchords, we can look at applying palm muting in other ways.

This is an acoustic guitar exercise using palm muting and other techniques you have learned to play a totally different type of chord sequence.

Don't worry if you don't have an acoustic. Simply play your electric guitar through a clean channel (that means turn down the gain on your wall of stacked amplifiers).

Here the open strumming is quite loose and free across a simple chord progression, but listen to where the palm muting comes in. Sometimes different strings are palm muted, much like a partial chord strum. As always, check the strumming dots in the ActionTab to make sure you are along the right lines, and use the Light Strings option from the Settings menu!

Chords here are:

A minor - C major - A minor - C major - G major - E major (repeat)

Again, if you want to use normal muting to help kill notes between chords (i.e. when the X's appear), and know how - then feel free to use it.
