Hello people!

I have a question:
How do you mute a string in a chord?

I can't seem to figure it out how to do it......

Thanks!

To EFGuitar,

How about:


E|--3--3--0--3--3--0--3--3--|
B --1--3--1--1--3--1--1--3--|
G|--0--0--2--0--0--2--0--3--|
D|--x--0--2--x--0--2--x--0--|
A|--3--2--0--3--2--0--3--2--|
E|--x--3--0--x--3--0--x--3--|

Thanks.

Yep, you just use a finger you aren't already using to play the chord to lay atop the string so it can't vibrate when strummed. For the low E string, you can use your thumb to mute it, or just an unused finger for any other.

Also, if it's easier for the chord, you can use a finger fretting on the string next to the string you need to mute, and rest it on the side of the muted string.

Specifically to the diagram shown above I would play it like:

e-3 - pinky
B-1 - 1st finger
G-0 -
D-x - 3rd finger (muted)
A-3 - 3rd finger
E-x - 3rd finger (muted)

now your 3rd finger will use the mid section to fret the string. put it on a bit of an angle which will mute the string underneath (D) and will push up a bit on the (E) which will mute that one too. so you are fretting (A) and muting both strings with the same finger. Hope that makes sense.
