5 on my guitar theres to much sustain after it. how can I tackle this problem? thesong I'm playing is dying in your arms by trivium.

(the 5's are meant to be lined up)

Too much sustain? Elaborate, and which part of the song are you talking about, exact time in the song... e.g 2:30 or something.
#4
TOO much sustain? I wish i could get MORE sustain, lol. Yeah anyway, is it staccato picking (letting go of the fret fingering right after the note is played)?

Errr...

take your finger off the strings/mute it with your picking hand to stop it sustaining....

I'd imagine what you mean is that the note continues ringing for too long after you play it. There's a technique called staccato, where you lift your finger off of the fretboard while still keeping it on the string, which cuts off the note.

That and if I'm right about what you're playing that part of the song needs to be palm muted which should cut the sustain to almost nothing anyway.

If you want to mute string in non-aggressive way, use PM... Staccato is often to much "staccato"? ok.. can't find the word to express myself...
