whenever i sweep down, the G string always seem to vibrate and makes a ringing sound, i have told to palm mute it, except i don't really know how or it just seems harder and i'm not sure if i'm doing it correctly or not, is there any other ways to mute out the strings or to sweep cleanly?

help appreciated and dont say all these bs about the g string -_-''

Do you mean as you lift your finger off you get like a pull off to the open string?

I've just started learning to sweep and I think palm muting is not correct, it's to do with left handed technique but I'm not 100%.

Could be something to do with the bridge (I have trouble with that on my guitar sometimes), or it just could be that you accidently knock a string whilst moving your fingers. Just try it really slow and look at what your doing while your doing it so you can be certain of the problem.

have that same problem. This guy on youtube explains a different way to mute with ur thumb or something but I didnt quite get it. Maybe you'll get it. Please explain if you do.
