I'm trying to attempt playing the Power Chords on my Fender Performer Strat and I understand that I have to mute the G, B & E Strings with the finger that is at the root. For example., if I'm playing the G5 power chord, then my pointing finger is on the 3rd fret thicker E String while at the same time I also mute the G, B & E. But I'm having problems doing that as you know the fret board on the Fender Strat is pretty narrow and I could not arch my finger such that I can press the thick E with my pointing finger and at the same time mute the G, B & E Strings. Any clues on how to get this nailed?
I have a Taylor acoustic and I can play this much comfortably on it because of the fact that the fret board is a bit wider than my Fender Strat. So any techniques that I can try to play this on my Fender?
