pm .. .. .. .. . . .. .. .. .. . .

it is "Like Light To The Flies by Trivium" i know it says palm mute the open but thats where im having trouble. Like is there any good way to play that makes it easier to mute the 6th open but not mute the 5th string too? I have trouble playing any song that is built like this.

I'm not sure I understand you correctly..but..

Don't Mute all the strings, in other words , when you mute with the flat of your hand, keep it at an angle ( so that your fingers point upwards) and only mute the 6th string.

Hard to explain...mmmmm...

Do you understand what I said?

I've heard loads of Gibsons being played before
and they don't sound any more special than
any other guitar.

yeah that does make sense, basically im just having trouble playing it at decent tempo while keeping just the 6th string muted, and without having to lift off the guitar every other note to unmute it.

Or, what you can do is LIFT your entire hand up when you play those notes on the 5th string.


So you lay your hand flat on all string when you play those opens on the 6th to mute em, the when you play the notes on the 5th, you lift your hand up and pick the note, the resume muting, the lift up again etc etc.

?? Make any sense.??

Pracitise slow then increase speed if you cant keep up with the tempo.

I had problems just like that when I start to learn to play Master Of Puppets ( Like a year ago) , then after a while it just got easier with time.

Don't just leave your hand on the 6th string, that develops a nasty habit called anchoring.

But leaving your hand on the 6th string is nessesary here because look at the riff.

I'm not talking in general , but I believe for that riff you need too.

It's also possible to mute the open E (sorry i mean D) with the tip of the finger that your playing the A string notes with.

Having said that I'd play the whole thing muted not just the sixth string.
