First of all, I have to say that I really enjoy this one. Getting to play tight tight punk style riffs, is sure not as easy as you might think.

But I have a small technical question for you. When I do the muted tones, I tend to ease the pressure on the strings with my left hand at the same time as I mute with my palm. I can see on the vid that the fingers on your left hand are glued to the fingerboard while playing the X-notes. Am I wrong in doing this? It's just a reflex I guess, but is it something that might hinder my technical progress later?

Thanks in advance!

Hey man smile.gif

You don't have to raise the fingers of the fretboard once you are down, it's more effective to keep them down if they are already down, it's all about cutting out all the unnecessary movements and making the sound as tight as possible. Try to keep it like that while practicing on slower tempos and in time it will show in your playing as well. No need to rush things or to think about it while actually playing it will only get worse. Just keep it steady, and do it while practicing. It's not a bit deal, it will come to it's place in time. cheers mate
