I have a(nother lol) question. When I play Bulls On Parade, during the wah riff, I "mute" the strings by removing the pressure on the strings (which is simply just me not pressing on the strings with my fingers on) after the chords. Would that be considered palm muting or something else? It does produce a sound similar to palm muting.

It's called a finger mute. Works kinda like a palm mute, but different. They're also great for "clamping" a note when you don't want sustain.

If your palm muting sounds like the wah riff you're doing it wrong.

The riff has fret hand damping, I'm not sure what else you'd call it but I'm sure it has many names.

It doesn't sound like the wah riff at all. It sounds different.

And thanks you guys. Guess I misuderstood what palm muting was. :P
