Re: building the church help
ok man, for those interested ive figured out how its done
Ok its quite subtle but it IS the left hand that mutes the strings to get rid of the unwanted noise, its quite difficult to do and makes it more difficult to tap with the left hand but it works.
Place the left hand with the left side of the palm muting most of the stings (about 6th-3rd/2nd), it does not mute all the strings as this completly screws up the flexibility but it dampens most of the strings that cause the terrible noise, the 3rd finger on the left hand rests on the side of the neck (side facing floor) and the little finger rests just behind that, the thumb is used to support the rest of that hand.
With this position it mutes virtually all of the strings and sound so much cleaner, its a little more difficult at first but practicing the motions and keeping a strict hand position pays off big time. the final hardest is the movment during the solo section, and it is difficult but as long as you practice slow the position changes, and importantly the hand position during the changes, making sure the left hand is in the position i described. all unwanted noise is reduced
good luck man as its a corker when it gets flowing cleanly.
once the hand position is sorted and its clean slow, its just a case of practicing it again and again
