Hey guys, I'm having some problems muting with my left (fretting hand), sound problems. Very simple to explain: say I'm playing an A on my E string (5th fret) and I want to mute it with my left hand. What I do is I lift my finger a bit so that it still touches the E string but it doesn't push the string against the fret (I guess this is more or less the standard muting method). Now, I don't know if this depends on the fact that I'm using guitar rig (I use for practicing when I don't have my amp with me) and my laptop's soundboard (crappy stuff) but I get an annoying sound when I lift my string, as if I was playing the harmonic on the 5th fret (I actually am, in fact). That sounds pretty obvious, I know...but I do not notice all these annoying sounds when I watch professionals play, so if possibile I'd like to get rid of it. Any advice? Does it depend on my "rig" or am I doing something wrong?
