    Palm muting advice

    Thanks for the tips. This has been one of the most frustrating aspects of playing guitar. I'm getting barre chords down but palm muting has just been a stumbling block. Especially since most of the stuff I listen to and want to play is hard rock, metal, and a little bit of punk.

    Palm muting advice

    I figured it out. I have to crank the guitar up, not the drive volume on the amp. With the guitar turned up and the drive volume set on 2, I live in an apartment after all, I can get all my guitars to sound good palm muted.

    You know what's weird? I can pull it off on my Syn Gates Standard but I can't get it to soundd as good on my Teles and LP. Go figure.

    That's so right. I love how this way of playing is starting to feel natural. Instead of only using my first 3 fingers and jumping around. My pinky is getting stronger everyday.

    In The Light

    Almost got it. This riff is from a song that saved my life and it's only fitting that it be played on Jimmy's Dragon Telecaster. Just gotta smooth out the picking and get Jimmy's groove down.

    I can't believe I never listened that closely to the lyrics before. They are motivating.

    Just remembered a song that helps. It's called "Get Up" by Shinedown. Great message about not giving up.

    Thanks for sharing your stories guys. Also, I'm starting to feel like a grandma. I was 21 when COE dropped. :LOL: Also, I'm liking seeing Linkin Park mentioned. Hybrid Theory dropped when I was a sophomore in high school, Slipknots self titled album dropped the year before. Slipknot helped me...

    Totally get that. Guitar is really what is keeping me going right now. My brain goes to bad places when I don't have anything to do. So recently whenever it starts going that way, I just grab a guitar and start dicking around or work on a song I'm learning. Helps a lot.

    Music and mental health

    What's up fam? So recently my mental health has gone into a steep and scary decline. And I never realized until I got this low how much music has helped me over the years. I came real close to saying "fuck this life" and I happened to hear "In The Light" by Zeppelin. And I realized that there is...
