take stop pressing down with your fret hand but keep playing with your pick hand, thus making a sound but playing the actual notes

you palm mute with your left hand and slightly touch the strings with the right hand so you get dead notes

Just let your finger rest on the strings and hit them.


Yup, make sure that no note sounds, that you just get the sound of the strings. You will have to be careful that harmonics don't sound.

there's nothing wrong with asking a question when you don't understand something. but this question gets asked at least once every 30 minutes. maaybe there should a little box that comes up explaining the x's whenever somebody tries to start a thread.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
