Tech­nique Fo­cus Palm-mut­ing

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Rockabilly -

Light palm mut­ing is es­sen­tial on this track for both the main verse and cho­rus riffs and the sin­gle note riffs played in uni­son with the bass (for ex­am­ple bar 20 on­wards). Make sure you find a hand po­si­tion that en­ables your strum­ming hand to mute the strings in a way that makes the mut­ing as ef­fi­cient dur­ing up­strokes as it is dur­ing down­strokes. Fo­cus in on with the main riff es­pe­cially, mak­ing an ef­fort to keep the mut­ing even-sound­ing. This is a chal­lenge par­tic­u­larly when hav­ing to si­mul­ta­ne­ously mute two strings dur­ing each up­stroke, so take your time with that.
