I just don't get it. Almost all of the songs I wanna play have it but I just don't know how to do it, so can someone tell me how to do it.
this really should go in the guitar basics. also check out youtube for examples.

Slightly mute the strings(rest your palm) with your picking hand and play. It's to put accent on other notes. Try this;


Play this with and without palm mutes (being the numbers in ()). You should understand. It adds punch to the final power chord, in this case.

You have 2 options.

1. Tits.
2. GTFO.

Move around your hand(palm) till you get the right sound. There are different degrees of muting, depending on how far/close your hand is to the bridge.
