hi sorry if this has already covered but im confused about a couple of things, can somebody tell me what a dead note means and also what does a ghost note mean?
Wanna know what gear i have? check my profile

Muddy Waters invented electricity

Paul Kossoff = Genius
A dead not i when you mute the note with both right and left hand.
A ghost not is like a note that don't sound as ''loud'' as a normal note, it comes naturally to me so it's kinda hard to explain, but you mute it slightly with your right hand ( idk how others do it, but this is how i do it)

Hope that helped
Sometimes notate ghost notes in guitar pro to emulate effects also, like Delay. .. Mastodon-Sleeping Giant, need I say more?
