String muting while shredding
Hi there guys, I need a bit of help here.
I just recently started to notice how much string noise there is when I play and my co-guitarist taught me about string muting/dampening, using my left and right hands.
It feels completely alien to me, since I used to play without any concern for dampening at all. But of course, I want to play clean, so that's my main concern right now.
A problem I have though is that I've given up a substantial amount of picking speed. Are techniques or tips on string muting when doing really fast, shred type stuff and metal machine-gun type rhythms?
