ok, so when i play my guitar, either just playing scales or song.

let's say im doing 3 notes per string scale. ( c major or whatever)

i hit low E string and then move up to A string, but at that moment E string is still ringing while i'm hitting A string,and it's not good to hear. do u guys know what i mean ?

so how do i fix this or how do i make it not to do that ?

do i palm mute it ? but it's too hard to palm mute it all time while im playing, and i don't think paul gilbert mutes it when he's playing real fast. i even tried to make my fretting weaker, so maybe it won't ring hard. but that was not it.



i dont know if anyone has this experience.

oh and let's share some advice about how to play cleaner on guitar.

I naturally lie the meat by my thumb on the above strings when I play, it usually is kind of a personal thing, so get a lot of input and find the one for you. smile.gif Also it takes time and experiece, no one is always perfect, its something that builds upon its self forever. So the more you play the better you get at it.

I believe palm muting would solve your problem.
It's not like regular palm muting really,like when you're playing some tight riffs or boosted leads.
It's more like "rolling" your palm over bridge to slightly touch lower string/s you want to mute.
Quite hard to explain(specially using my poor english wink.gif ) but I hope you've got the idea. smile.gif

You can also try resting your left hand fingers on E string while fretting notes on A string, just move them a little up while fretting to touch the E string and stop it from vibrating...You can stop these unwanted sounds that way or with palm muting..Later on it will come natural to you.. wink.gif

There are several ways to palm mute the strings. I try to mute the higher adjacent string with the tip of the thumb (the part of the thumb just to the left of the nail) when playing faster passages. It requiers a lot of practice but it gives the tone a special kind of sound.

The ultimate goal is to use palm muting for that, and it just requiers practice that's all. Play everything muted and try to mute it, and in some time it will mute by itself

I'm with Muris on this one, if I understood him correctly
The sort of rolling palm muting, meaning for example when you play the low E theres no palm muting, the when you move to the A string you palm mute the E string, and when you move to the D string you palm mute the A and The E string and so on...

I used to have these problems too and that was the solution I came up with

You pathological liar! tongue.gif

On topic though, as I said in another thread:

Try and narrow the problem down yourself, play the lick slowly and see what causes the "ringing". You've clearly already done this. The next step should be to try and play it with different fingerings (e.g. without the barring) and see what works. Slow practice will make perfect, and will allow you to work properly on whatever mistakes you may have found in your playing.
