I am good at palm muting, but can only get the correct sound when i down pick. I want to learn how to mute when i upstroke as well. I actually can do down and up on only one string, but when it is 2 strings like, A and E together, it doesn't come out the way i would like. Any tips, or pages i could read on this?

i dont think you can? exept when you do it really fast.

But like normal "chug" speed. It dosent sound right, so i dont think you can on the up stroke.

Make sure you don't take off your picking hand when doing the upstroke. I'm surprised at how many people actually do that without realising; I myself used to do it.

It's the same as when you down pick? just try practising alternate picking in a horse gallop iron maiden style. up then down while always keeping your palm on the strings

As I do it, I'm noticing that my pick isn't on the same angle to the strings on the upstroke.

Also, I tend to hit the second string first, so it takes most of the force and sorta... takes over the sound.


I think I'm going to play some foo-fighters song in all upstrokes and get back to ya!

Wow, that makes my hand tired fast....

I think part of our problem (it doesn't sound the same for me either - except using just the right tone) might be that our hand is just weaker on the upstroke.

I think doing some songs entirely in PMed upstrokes might help...

^ you're probably tensing up your muscles to get the speed which is bad. your wrist should be pretty limp and pliable.

You could be lifting your palm a little....try making your upstroke a little lower than your downstrokes....and really I would downpick all palm muted stuff that isn't fast chugging or galloping....
