Hi Gab
I am looking at your Picnic Panic lessons. One of the rhythm involves a downstrum while muting the strings at the bridge. Can you give me some tips on how to do it? I halways struggle to play it correctly, in particular the higher strings do not sound nicley "muted".
Thanks in advance
Carmine

In that rhythm I first mute the string with the palm of my right hand and then a do the downstroke. It's just a matter of milliseconds but that's what is happening. You have to find the way that it becomes a unique natural movement just from your elbow (muting) and then from your wrist (downstroke). Let me know if it's clear. Feel free to share a video or to assist to my Vchat session today and I will show you how to do it.
