hey UG!

so I was watching some of freepower's videos up on youtube and i came across the one about muting unwanted strings. i've been trying to do this for a while now but i don't understand the video and everytime i try to do i it i always mess up. can anyone explain to me the right way to mute unwanted strings?

much appreciated!

It really can't be explained any more simply than in the vid.

Play the 5th fret on your low E. Now play the 5th on every other string one after the other.

AS you move down, you want your movement to be small enough, that your finger will stop everything apart from the note you intend, ringing out.

I had a go, but try and re-watch the video.
You just use any spare bit of either hand to touch the offending string just enough to stop it vibrating.
