Palm Muting 14

Animated Palm Muting 14 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 we have remained at the lower end of the fretboard. Let's move higher up and apply some of the techniques learned in this section. Playing on the higher frets is easier for a lot of people because the frets are smaller and this means that finger stretches are not as difficult to play as on lower frets (which are bigger).

In this exercise we play a typical rock riff, relying on palm muting the Low E string for constant rhythmic effect, and doing open chord stabs on the adjacent A and D strings. Certain notes are palm muted, some are not. Listen to the tune and watch the ActionTab to identify what is being done. Get the normal speed audio in your head by listening to it on loop until you know what it is you are aiming for.

Next we'll look at having some fun by playing a solo over the top of this riff.
