hey all. k im learning polly at the moment and i was wondering about the way kurt played it (nevermind album). when he plays the power chords hes strumming up and down. all you can hear is the power chords his strumming , u cant hear any open strings. is he mutting the other strings with his finger?? i apologise if this is a stupid question. any suggestions on how to play this song properly are greatly welcomed. thanx !

He's using a technique called "not hitting the other strings".
Actually called Mark!

It's not rocket science, you just hit the strings you want to hit. Now if you're really thrashing about you'll want to mute the open strings to stop them vibrating sympathetically, but it doesn't change the fact that you're not supposed to be hitting them in the first place.

He uses a technique called 'Practice'.


Duh.

It's not like I'm lying though.

If you practice it correctly you'll only hit the strings you're supposed to hit (or haven't you ever reached that point yet?).




EDIT: Just to make sure I wasn't doing a complete dickhead move and saying the impossible I looked at the tab... And it's down to practice like I thought

Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

He might be, but he's also not hitting them
