Hi guys,

Just curious -- i am trying to master this, as I think it's an awesome sound with a solo...are you guys raking (purely percussive, no note) by palming all but the noted string? Or, are you using, say, your index finger to mute all but the played string and then maybe using your middle finger to hold down the played string?

I think it's a matter of situation - things we play. We can use both if it's comfortable at the moment. Can You post any video of particular situation You mean?

For instance, like Sambora in his solo stuff in this song...

bed of roses live, Bon Jovi

Oh, and to clarify...i mean his raking right before the first note of a solo phrase

I use it before a bend sometimes, so I use my picking hand. I learned it from Trond Vold.

Ok...so now I can tell I use my palm and the 1st finger of the left hand. This gives more clean, percussive sound even on a higher distortion smile.gif

So you use both at same time? Ive tried using my palm exclusively...just seems like theres always a chance that the next to last string might ring out accidentally.

The index finger method works, but forces me to use middle finger.

Not a huge deal, just was curious what you guys did.

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginn...String-Bending/

bear Rose uses a lot of raking in this lesson, though it's mainly about bending. He looks to use exclusively palm-muting as his raking technique.

I guess Ill have to just develop the touch. As a beginner, I find that sometimes I either palm mute ALL the strings (including my intended playing string) or I dont mute enough and I accidentally play the string above it.

When raking, I tend to play the final note with my middle finger, and have my index finger placed behind it lightly touching the strings. That's just me.

I use only my palm. I never thought to use both at the same time. Hmm....maybe I didn't thought because I never used higher distortion biggrin.gif
