I'm having a very tough time getting any kind of consistent sound with palm muting. one second I mute the sound out entirely, the next second it sounds completely full because I didn't mute it at all. Plus, how to mute evenly across all the strings?

Thanks!

Keep your hand fixed on the bridge so that you only have to make a slight movement to start palm muting. Also, start off slow and gradually build up speed with a metronome.

dont mute a lot, just get a small part of ur palm hangin over from the bridge to the strings, then u can apply more palm/pressure to mute more and less etc etc.

just keep tryin it, watch some youtube **** maybe

You think muting is hard. Just wait until you have to learn pinch harmonics.

i think palm muting comes with practice just keep practicing and it should all settle itself out

I find pinched harmonics far easier.

Play a Cort ?

Play with V-Picks ?

I would suggest you place the joint between your hand and your wrist just on the edge of the bridge. I sometimes substiute this for harmonics that are hard to do.

practice practice practice. go through trying a buncha ways to place the palm until you find the one that works then just work on it.
