Lesson 8.11 – Fret Hand Muting

Muting with your fretting hand is a performance technique usually used in rock, metal or ska to create rhythmic patterns or to separate played notes. To mute with your fretting hand, lay your hand or fingers across the strings partially pressed down, but not all the way. While partially pressing down on the strings with your fretting hand, use your strumming hand to pick or strum the strings. The resulting sound should be a sort of muffled scratch, also commonly described as a “click.” Muting with your fretting hand is indicated in guitar
tablature with an “x” on each string requiring muting.
