Current Struggle

Discussion started by AndyT , on 02 July 06:48 AM
Right now, I'm fighting with palm muting. I'm working on a good solid 12 bar so I can sit down and just go for it, with or without others.

Palm muting, string plucking add extra to a sound. Palm muting is a key to metal playing, shredding is what they call it. Once you got it build up your speed on electric. String plucking is a good blues sound. Keep on Bedroom rocking!

Palm muting is so fun once you get just the right pressure boom, drop D calls lol.

Ok, Neil is posting Hotel California in pieces. That makes me current struggle not to flip out waiting for the rest of it! LOL Of course you know I'm going to have to get all over this one for a while. So that means my new struggle has just become barre chords.

How hard is it to find time to practice? And when you get the time, do you do it? Or do you do something related to it instead?

Palm muting for me was a little different....It was like riding a bike...once I got past the threshold it smoothed out better...But it took a while....
