i assume that you've been playing for at least 3 years.

and yet you can't palm mute quickly?

the only way to improve is to practice.

try and see how little pressure you can get away with while doing palm muting. That's the only reason I can see you having a problem, that you're pressing too hard and making it too hard for yourself to pick/strum.

im sorry but theres no way a band as awfully, disgracefully **** as MCR can write or play anything that could challenge even a three year old who has never played guitar before

MCR are the ****test band ever to disgrace this planet, and actually deserve to drown in a sea of animal semen

Just practice a lot.

Are you doing all downstrokes or upstrokes as well?

Wow, you're cool.

Evidently you've never really listened to an MCR song. Look up Dead!. It's not impossibly hard, but I'm pretty sure a 3 year old would have a tough time with it.

I'm guessing their guitarists are better than you are, somehow.

practice palm muting 16th notes with a metronome. just start at a moderate speed and crank it up a bit every day. this works a whole lot better then juts sitting down and trying to move your hand up and down as fast as you can. although, like mentioned above, wanking does help lol

do you use alternet picking in pulm mute?, beacue if i do an upstroke i can only play the "bass root" of the power chord, only one string.

TS: Try playing along to Metallica's Master of Puppets.

It's known for it's difficult palm muted downpicking sections. It'll do you a world of good!


Yeah, do the main "spider" riff with only downstrokes.

Depends. Have you always played guitar that way? I have a friend who's a lefty and has never touched a left-handed guitar. He has no problems. If you've just switched though, I'd imagine the transition might be difficult.

then practice doing the whole powerchord on upstrokes.

I know this song's played with all downstrokes but you should really be able to do upstrokes aswell. It'll only hold you back otherwise.

as for this song I can only advise you to practice it over and over and over until you can get it to that speed. If you've got guitar pro you could use the speed trainer thing to slow it down slightly and play along to a tempo at which you can play accurately.

then once you have it down at that speed, increase the tempo slightly until you can do it at full speed.

If you're having a lot of trouble, do what I do. Sorta rake the strings with your pic in an alternate motion. You can go really fast that way. I'm not sure if this is the correct way, But it sounds really punk when you do th at aswell.
