Muting

String Noise No More

A critically important lesson detailing the physics behind good muting technique. I cannot overstate how important this lesson is.

About This Course

Errant string noise makes you sound sloppy. But when you’re using The Grip, muting becomes an art form. The Grip was all about letting strings ring clearly. Muting is all about keeping them silent. Muting is a crucial skill that separates great and mediocre players. It must become second nature or you’ll be fighting ringing strings for the rest of your playing days.

Muting is a 1 hour lesson that teaches you the techniques that allowed players like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix to play so powerfully, yet so cleanly.
