  • Welcome to the Muting Unwanted Noise Techniques lesson !

    To become a professional player, it's not only about many tricky licks you know, or how fast is your picking. Professionals do play simple things as well right? Why is the difference visible, if we listen to beginner and professional both playing the same simple riff? There are two fields, where we can search for answer. Tone control, done with hands only (not a topic of this lesson) and ability to play clean (noiseless, with perfect intonation). This particular lesson will lead you through what professionals do, to sound nice and clean. It's important to bring those good habits into your playing, since the very beginning. They will make you sound pro, even at early stage of guitar experience.
