    I m actually more into heavy rock sounds or I like punk pop sounds too but for some reason I like blues on the guitar. IS this weird having a liking on mix genres.

  9. I've been playing around with when to mute the strings. Are you muting only when playing the chugging parts? Like the A chord, B chord and the walk up with the F# thru
    B power chords and obviously the E chord in the start.
    Thanks for this great lesson!
