So i come across songs that are tabbed like below. How would you play that? I understand how to play it when there is the x between the strings. However how are suppose to strum that without muting the string in between?

D#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
F#|--16--16-16-16--16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16-16------------------------|
C#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G#|--14--14-14-14--14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14------------------------|
C#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

mdelpaz3 Something like you have posted would just be played by muting the string in between like if there was an x.


On the other hand something like this would be played by plucking the indicated notes (with fingers or fingers + pick)

e|-0---2-----------|
b|-------3----2----|
g|---------2-------|
d|-----0-----------|
a|------------0----|
e|-0---------------|

Need to know if this was tabbed with strumming in mind, or picking both notes together.
If strumming, mute the middle string by lightly touching it using the side of your index finger that is
fretting the lower note. The 2 notes are A#, one octave apart. You could turn it into an
A#5 power chord by including 16th fret on the C# string.
