Punk guitarists trading tips and tricks
i can play guitar okay-ishly. i can do powerchords-sliding-up-and-down-the-fret-board type stuff, but can't do anything very intricate, like competent solos. my question is about palm mutes.
i love that metal-influenced, chunka-chunka, chub chub guitar sound thrown into hc songs, ala NYHC or Amebix. i can do palm mutes okay. but is there any sort of trick to getting a really fast, galloping sort of dugga-dugga sound? any tips?
i know stuff like this is easier to just SHOW someone that to write about, but a lot of punks ongs have very fast repetitive palm mutes and when i try to do it fast my pick inevitably gets caught in the strings and flies out of my hand.
