Thats a video of Matt Bellamy from Muse doing it perfectly, how is it done - originally I thought it was to do with his Fuzz Factory but I seem to be having no joy, anyone got any ideas???

I'm not sure how he does it that good, I can imagine high gain pickups help though.

It may depend on what kind of nut you have too though....
I think a nut made of steel gives more sound.. instead of a plastic one

zakk wylde does that kinda noise by hitting the stings between the bridge and tail on his LP, im guessing its just high gain pups

It's a Matt B. signature move. You have to fill up on star power first before attempting it.

I asked about this once and someone told me a combination of high-output pickups, brass nut (on the guitar ), and high gain on the amp helps.

Well I know Tom Morello does it on like a stock Telecaster. Which is like not high gain or anything at all.

I think it's just down to technique and practice.

I do it on a strat. It's about force, in my opinion. I get great behind the nut stuff when I just beat the hell out of the strings with my hand, a pick, my amp, whatever.

i think its down to having a 6 in a line headstock havnt seen it been done on a guitar with a headstock with 3 a side tuners ive been told to strum real hard across 1st 3 strings with lots of gain but doesnt work for me

THE TIME HAS COME TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT

i find just strumming above the neck works

In order to do that, you must have all of the strings on one side of the guitar. For example a Strat or a Tele. When you strum the G string it creates that noise, only due to the fact that all of the string are running straight up to tuners on one side of the guitar. Although, I have seen this done on other guitars, but I'm not sure how to do it that way...
