hey guys, i've been playing for a little over 5 years and i still can't do friggin ska guitar right. i don't know what's wrong, like it seems like its ringing out for too long but i can't stop it any sooner. i don't think the bands i listen to use barre chords either. anyone know how to play it right? p.s. i read the articles on ug about ska and it doesnt help
Are you having trouble muting? Just use a lot of palm mute and let your fingers up off the strings as soon as you play the chord.
yea, i dunno though but ive been trying for a while and i'm having a real problem. i'm tryin impression that i get, but i cant get it...
when you play mute the downstoke and let the upstroke ring.
