Hey, I was just trying to learn the song "glorious" by Muse. Here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZVcn1iYPDU

Anyway, for the main guitar part, I find it very hard to palm mute down stroke that fast. Do guitarists just practise at this? I get really bad pains in my arm muscle when I do it too fast. Do they do downstrokes? or up and down strokes while palm muting.
Yeh, I know, However, what does Matt do? Just for interest sake. I find it hard to believe people can downpick that fast. Maybe it's just practice. Thanks for the reply.

the way its played youll have some problems alternating it
its totally possible to do that downpicking
i got tired of my signature and i no longer has one

There is no advantage in downpicking except when your upstrokes suck. In this case, practice them more.
^ seconded.

Äh, Sie wollen also mit Schlitz.
Thanks for the replies guys. I have been playing for about 4 years or so, but have mostly stuck to finger picking guitar. So all this is new to me. Thanks for the replies.
