How do you do that ? I am working on D01 Ricercar. What I do to silence the E when I have to move to A is use the side of my thumb (at first joint) to damp it. Is this correct.Richard Judge wrote:Roll the thumb back onto the previous string to damp a lower note (string) (eg Play A damp E)
Yeah, I get that. Its just hard to adjust my thinking after so many years of playing mostly electric. Hard to teach an old dog new tricks I suppose...markodarko wrote:Most of the time though, unless it's a run or a ringing note which would clash with the one you're just about to play, sustained notes are quite desirable in CG. They give a certain "ambience" to the sound through the sympathetic resonances. Take Leyenda for example. You wouldn't want to dampen the notes you're not playing as they all add to the "reverbyness" of the sound - which is more or less pronounced on different guitars, of course.
I'd definitely stop muting with your palm, though. It does tend to compromise your hand position.
