I'm trying to play part of a song that looks like this:
0 x x 0 x x 7 x x x
9 x x 5 x x 5 x x x
I find it very difficult to play this. I have trouble playing open strings and letting them ring while fretting the other one. And I have a lot of trouble "deadening" (not palm muting) notes without their harmonics ringing. This song is sort of fast so that makes it worse in combination.
I'm not a beginner, I'm just not used to this technique. Can you help?
