That looks very much like the answer I was looking for.
For some reason, I had perceived a "palm mute" in the sense of an effect only for a particular riff or phrase and always kept a very hands-off approach otherwise? For my whole life, I had considered I had to play so clean that in the context of muting unwanted noise I had to delicately roll the palm on the bridge as I play. As such, a palm mute in my erroneous conception was kind of like a form of cheating. Immediately assuming I was doing something wrong. Sounds pretty silly I know. Clearly, I over-thought this one. Cleared up a huge misconception there for me and that means a hell of a lot to me.
Sometimes, all it takes is for just the same old thing I have heard many times over ... to be uttered in just a slightly different way.
Thanks Emir! You made my day.
Great man I am happy if this helped you. There is nothing wrong with palm muting but of course you shouldn't overdo it. Mix it with normaly played notes for better dynamics and better control so you help yourself to play cleaner
