Free Video Teaches Guitar Muting Techniques
(EMAILWIRE.COM, August 15, 2014 ) St. Paul, MN -- Muting is a standard guitar technique that is critical to be considered an advanced guitar player. It is used by electric guitar and bass guitar players to create a particular sound or clean up "sloppy" sounds caused when strings are left to openly vibrate. This is most notable when using a lot of distortion while playing.
Self-taught guitarists often think it is their lack of playing skill that causes the unwanted sound when in fact it is the lack of awareness or know-how of muting techniques.
MAC Guitar Muting Techniques Music Accessories enlisted the help of pub/punk band The Manchester Social Club frontman, Nate Beck to teach the most common muting techniques. In the just-released video, Beck demonstrates a left hand muting technique, a thumb muting technique and two palm muting techniques on the electric guitar and explains when to use each.
The "Guitar Muting Techniques" video is the 6th in a series of videos sponsored by MAC Music Accessories, manufacturer of the SpeedPro Guitar Tuner. The first five videos focused on how to play specific elements of specific songs including:
1. Intro to Frank Turner's Photosynthesis
2. Johnny Cash's Right Hand Strumming Pattern
3. Main Guitar Riff of "Jenny Don't Be Hasty" by Paolo Nutini
4. Intro to Frank Turner's Wessex Boy
5. Inter-Chordal Movement of "Stubborn Love" by The Lumineers
"We wanted to give guitar players a video series that is both educational and fun," said Stacey Marmolejo, President MAC Music Accessories. "We invited Nate (Beck) into the process of determining what to teach and he was the one who suggested he teach how to play portions of songs that sometimes stump people. Our team wanted Nate to teach the techniques that he uses in his own recordings, so we opted to do some of each."
Future videos include finger picking, hammer ons, pull offs and solo'ing techniques.
