Guitar_man - 2005-02-05

Ok.... DO YOU OWN A GUITAR?!?!?!? how are you supposed to mute one string While playing the others regularly??????????????


dhumann05 - 2005-02-07

I'll tell ya how, by using a free finger and just barely touching the string. It makes it so the string cant vibrate. So yes, I'm sure he owns a guitar. And has had at least a few lessons...
