I'm wondering how I can get the mute sound that I hear so often in songs(teen spirit for example), I understand the basic but I somehow can't get the sound right, I dont know if I'm doing it wrong or if its my amp settings.
just put your fingers on the strings without any presurre , then strum
it sounds better with distortion
if you actually want to mute the strings completely, just put your fingers over all the strings (using your fretting hand) and strum. If you want to palm mute, place the meaty part of your picking hand on the strings where they go to the bridge and just choke the sound off a little
