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?

Thanks!

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!

if it were bass i would say finger, finger/pic method.  however, since this is guitar part string mute is the only way.  are you using a tremolo?  if not the part will still sound a little off as that is a tremolo part :D

@lordraptor1 tremolo picking doesn't require a tremolo bar that is wrongly named because it doesn't allow for fast picking but for pitch shifting (whammy effect).

sorry i disagree that it is for tremolo picking, bouncing around strings or a speedy prgression sure, but for essentually a modified power chord doubt "tremolo picking" is used

@lordraptor1 As i said, the tremolo bar is not made for tremolo picking, the name is idiotic :

 

often referred to as a whammy bar, vibrato bar, or incorrectly as tremolo bar

 

https://en.wikipedia...tems_for_guitar

 

In OP case, tremolo picking is exactly what is done, you just have to make sure to mute the others strings :

But i would love to see a video of someone doing tremolo with a "tremolo" bar, that must be amazing to see...
