I'm just playing a song I always play for fun, which requires a power chord. I use my middle finger to mute the low e string...obviously...but my middle finger falls right on the fourth fret, producing an AnNoYiNg harmonic when I hit the chord.

Suggestions?

...am I doing something wrong? Haha, didn't know you could butcher a powerchord.

I don't mute my E string when doing that...I just don't strum that string!


Ditto. You should try getting used to this.^

yeah do what they said or if you really must mute it then just roll your hand more so that your middle finger is not touching the A string. Or you could palm mute the low E but its kind of tough. But i would just do wat every one else said to do

If you're playing slowly, just don't hit that string.

If you're playing too fast for it to matter, I usually reach around with my thumb to mute the low E, which makes my other fingers drop flat enough to mute the rest of the strings too. But I have longish fingers and I'm really flexible, so it might not be for everyone.
