Guitar Noise Podcast #10 – Adding Palm Muting

The tenth Guitar Noise Podcast gives us an introduction to palm muting, how it’s done and, more importantly, how it can become a vital part of your strumming bag of tricks.

After some initial exercises, we’ll be using the Am chord a lot, first doing an Am to G to F (or Fmaj7) to E chord progression where using palm muting allows us to create an interesting walking descending bass line.

Then we’ll focus again on the Am chord (along with the F or Fmaj7) in order to add hammer-ons and little fills to our basic palm muting strum. You’ll sound like a Seventies singer/songwriter in no time!

As always, I’ll be walking you step by step through the lesson. And, as always, please let us know what you think.
