Pick the muted notes, and then slide upwards.
"Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care"

I think it's a pick scratch. Could you give us an example of a song that has this?
what happened to the proposed Kirk Hammett flamenco album?


His acoustic didn't sound good with wah pedal, I suppose.

eruption by van halen, and i've seen it in some hit the lights tabs

Yeah, that's a pick scrape for sure.

Just turn your pic so the side faces the strings and run them down (or up, depending on the noise you want) the strings (only the bottom three though, won't make any noise on the top three.) This makes a "scraping" noise which you can hear at the begginning of Eruption.
