: Does anyone heard about palm muting on bassguitar?
: How do you do that without shattering your hands? :?¿?¿
One approach you could use is ghost notes, i.e. muting with the left hand.
If you put your finger on the string, but don't press down very hard on the fingerboard,
it'll give you a kind of thumpy/percussive sound. You might want to put more than one
finger on the fretboard at once because you may get a harmonic on some frets by accident.
If you play fingerstyle, right-hand muting can totally fuck up your wrist (I know this
from experience when I sucked even more than I do now).
