I'm looking to expand what i can do with my fingers, and i think it would be cool if i could learn about how to play so that while the notes have a strong initial punch, they die out almost instantly, faster than even the worst dead spots. im not sure if im describing this right, but im sort of looking for a sort of playing style similar to Geezer Butler on the intro to Sabbath's "war pigs." im sure his tone and gear had something to do with it, but his notes dont last for very long. My G&L has great sustain, almost too great, and i want to counter this i suppose. What im doing now is resting the edge of my hand from the end of my pinky to my wrist on the bridge, so that it is only slightly touching the strings. it gives the desired effect, but it also means that all i can do is play with my thumb and no fingers, which means super slow. id like to know a way of getting this lack of sustain for both using a pick and using fingers relatively quickly. Thanks!
