Yesterday, I watched a video about sweeping. I am not ready to learn sweeping but I am interested by one technic taught during that lesson. It is explained that when you sweep down, you should mute the played cords with the palm.

I tried and then figured out that this technic is pretty useful during a solo as well. Perhaps someone could explain me a bit or give more tricks about that ? Or perhaps a video already exists to learn more palm muting technics during solo ?

Thanks guys ! smile.gif

palm muting is important whenever you play. every time to play a string all the others should be muted other wise they ring. its basically putting your palm on the place where the strings end and the bridge starts in a karate chop kind of way. do a search for lessons about it.
