whenever i'm playing a rhythm where i mute the 6th string and hit it (i think this technique is called chopping?) instead of it completely muting it and killing the sound it creates a harmonic, how do i stop this? also i know this question might be in the wrong part of the forum, is the esp ec-1000 a versatile guitar?
that's not always a bad thing.
Try using two fingers instead. That way if you hit a node, the vibration won't be able to travel.
Put a few fingers down on the string to "dead" it out some more.
ur playin an artificial harmonic? keep ur finger or whatever held down. it wont do a harmonic.
