How do I play chords like these without the bottom e string ringing out?
#2
use the tip of the finger fretting the lower note to press up against the string above that to stop it from ringing

I kindof flatten my index finger so that it mutes the d-string, and use my middle finger to mute the bottom e if i need to.

This, and they're not called chords.


what are they called then, im pretty sure that more than 1 note play simultaneously can be called a chord, i might be wrong but thats just my understanding

3 notes (and up) simultaneously is generally called a chord, two notes simultaneously is generally called an interval.

Thanks guys, yours really helped Crimson because I've never been able to mute the bottom e while fretting the A string.

they're octaves. chords are 2 or more notes that are of different ptich (e.g. A and C#, which form an A chord.)

Actually it's generally 3 or more notes. 2 notes is just called a diad. That's why power chords with just the root and 5th aren't actually chords.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

But powerdiad sounds like something your nerdy photography class teacher would say

The main idea is to not hit the low E in the first place.
