Excellent topic Ivan!
I can't stress the importance of this enough. If you want to shred this is what sets good shredders apart from the dirty ones.
If you want to play funk (or "skunk") it is virtually impossible without this knowledge.
And finally if you just want to have killer tone - you can't live without this knowledge! (This is what feels most important for me)
So thanks again Ivan!
awesome lesson ivan!
Great lesson Ivan, I love how you always find the good words which offer to us a great and clear explanation !
As Kris said, this knowledge is really important for many techniques,as well for alternate picking as for sweeping etc..
aaaaaannnnd theeeeeeree it iiiisssssss....I am sure one of this Most Wanted Here with GMC have to check it out immediately...!
Great tutorial Ivan, important topic
Nice one Ivan! But if you use distorted sound muting with the left hand is useless because you will hit harmonics and stuff which will make MORE noise... what do you think?
Thanks for kind words guys
In the main text, spoken video and other videos I always stress the importance of combining the right and the left hand in the process of muting.
Great lesson man.
Great one Ivan. This is so important to know! thanks for this Ivan
great tutorial mate !!!
Many thanks for the lesson Ivan! After watching it I am scared that this is so huge and overwhelming nad difficult, and that it will take ages for me to learn it, but I also know that I have to slowly learn it, and this video will help me in it. Once again thanks!
Excellent lesson Ivan, helped me confirmed some ideas i have on muting, cause i taught it to myself and i didn't know if i was right. Thanks for this
Fabulous lesson, congratulations.
Great idea for a lesson Ivan. Excellent as always:D
Very important topic! Great lesson as always Ivan, very well explained.
Very essential topic covered here Good job!
I'm a dirty shredder!
Thanks to you, Ivan, I can mend my ways!
Thanks guys, I'm glad you like it. It is more some my ideas about the muting then a regular lesson, but I hope it will help
great job Ivan as usual.
Nice lesson, very useful!
always love your intros.
Thanks man, cheers
I always enjoy you trying to play like crap as an example. Ha, you can't do it.
Excellent lesson! I've been waiting for this one!
Thanks guys, I'm really glad you like the lesson
Cool, great stuff
Is it okay if I just think about muting when I'm practicing and not when I'm jamming? Because otherwise I'll be VERY slow while jamming.
Of course man, I wouldn't recommend thinking about muting while jamming, this cannot be done. Focus it while practicing and it will be embedded in the way you play.
very useful, thanks
You are really a fundamental piece of GMC Ivan. Perhaps Kris should grant you some stocks!
Thanks man for kind words. No need for Kris to do that, the mere fact that I am a part of this great place is a reward to itself
The lesson is great Ivan...firstly it is very well explained how to mute, secondly it does really sensitize you to mute the strings always when playing ! As you said if you get used to it, you will do the right things to mute the strings subconsciously..and hey..what is better than your brain doing all the work alone
Just learning Gabriel's stoner rock lesson and realise how crappy it sounds without muting
Thanks for kind words man. Just practice muting with everything else in that lesson on very very slow tempos and it will sound pro.
nice tutorial ivan
I didn't know the muting is so importand.
Thats the reason why my arpeggios sound so
dirty. So I must practice that muting tec.
The right hand tec. is familiar for me but
i haven't never heard the left hand style muting.
So thanks about good tutorial
Thanks mate, I'm glad you found it useful
Thank you man
very good topic!
