I noticed that when I play the high E string (1st string), 4th fret and palm mute only the high E string to stop the note from playing (while my finger is still on the 4th fret), that my low E string starts to resonate and is being picked up.

If I play the 5th fret of the high E string and palm mute only the high E string, my 4th string (D) starts to resonate and is being picked up.

Basically a lot of the notes on the high E string are causing the other strings to vibrate, which makes my guitar sound bad when I play. The only solution I can think of is to hold my palm on the 2nd-6th strings while playing the 1st string but I don't think this is good technique (anchoring?).

Thanks.

its normally, the vibration of the high e is causing the other strings to ring in harmonics.

its fine, if you want to stop this mute the strings not being played whether its your picking hand of fretting hand its up to you.
People in the pit take my post way too seriously.
