Hey just a query into the psychosocial solo which im currently learning. I can play it up to full speed now yet it sounds really mucky and drowned out. i know that the whole solo is palm muted but it sounds really bad yet it sounds so much better when i play it clean. i dont know or if its just my technique but i think it might be my picking hand moving over the string while i play it but i dont know please help me! btw i can video myself playing it if it makes it easier 4 you

it might be your amp to much bass and not of mids are going to kill palm mutes hope that helps \m/

While you're soloing you'll also generally want to use a lighter mute than when playing rhythm; the strings have less room to vibrate so you need to choke them less.

That's about the worst tone combo you can possibly get for a lead guitar. For lead parts, if you want a clear, full sound, you want to have middling highs, loads of mids, and middling/low bass (that's a general rule; there will be exceptions). The mid range is where the body of the guitar's sound is, so by scooping those out, you're just making your tone murky and unpleasant.
