Once again, here is a question that would be answered if I was taking lessons...sigh...soon I hope. I have trouble muting or ending the notes that I play when I have to strike several different strings in succession. What I mean is: it is easy to stop that 1/4 note when my next note is on the same string but I have more trouble when I have to stop say a 1/2 note on the E string and then have to strike another note on the D string. This is harder to explain than do... When I was watching a good bassist this weekend he seemed to use the first three fingers on his right hand to alternately play and mute. Suggestions for exercises to learn this? Or books that cover it well etc.
