Hey Guys!  Let me know if this is the wrong place to post (still new to these forums), but was curious how you would play this without hitting the string in-between the notes?  Do you mute the center string with another finger, or forego the pick and try to strum with two fingers?

You cannot not hit it so you have to mute it. Check the lessons in the game : https://www.reddit.c...ligion/dcrfjbr/

Thanks Firekorn; appreciate the feedback!  I knew there must be a lesson in game, but wasn't finding it.

depends on the song/ tech.... if just strumming you have to mute the string...

but you also can fingerpick or combined plec and finger.... then of course you can don't hit!
