Palm mute sweet spot is something I must have missed along the way. Fascinating. Thanks Richard.


I think you may have found it without knowing sir !


I primarily practiced power chords on electric so far, I didn’t feel comfortable to play them on acoustic, as they sounded a bit “dead”. I came back to them yesterday and found out, that the “break” of playing them on acoustic did well. Your lesson gave me a lot of motivation to implement them into my acoustic playing also. Thanks!


FIll your boots Toby.

This is about as close to tab I can go without it being tab. :slight_smile:


Heck or just watch the lesson. :wink:

That was a fun lesson. I am finally getting somewhere with these palm mutes. No where near perfect but there are sounding better. Thank you Richard.

It is another epic … fifteen pages of goodness !!

[ If I may be permitted to say so myself haha. ]

Gotta be worth a donation right?

Or, better still, I tickle the edges of a little power chord theory. Perhaps that could be enough to tempt you to take up the amazing discount running through May of lifetime subscription to Practical Music Theory at a giveaway discount price.

Richard the Salesman springs in to life haha

Holy smoke Batman.

My goodness. It’s all too much.
