This lesson deals with three methods for creating that muted note sound you can hear in old soul and reggae tunes. It’s also useful in creating an imitation upright bass sound.

The first technique is that of Palm Muting in the plucking hand, the second technique is muting with the fingers of the fretting hand and the third method involves using sponge, felt or rubber to physically mute the strings near the bridge.
