Hey Lee

THe thing that works for me most of the time is putting my palm of my right hand on the low strings especially the E string. That because when you play on th ehigh e string the low e string begins to ring because its the same pitch.
AND also use your left index finger when you fret only one note (with your middle finger for example) to mute the strings by "barring" it a bit on the strings.

good luck

If you play the 5th fret on the high (thinnest) e-string - and look at your two hands - you will see that the only hand that can mute the five remaining strings is the right hand (-palm).

If you do the same for the b string - you will see the same thing - except you can also mute the high (thinnest) e-string with your left hand fingers.

If you continue with this kind of thinking for all fingers you have got a system that covers most situations.

Now, how to apply this when playing is a matter of lots and lots of practice? It's important to think about these things when practcing slowly - otherwise it can be really tricky... smile.gif
