string mutes?

  1. I have a horrible technique at tapping, and i get the "Back-Buzz" as i call it, and i want a string mute that i can place near the nut. Any suggestions?

    I was actually thinkin about this myself. My bass teacher said use a hair scrunchy as well, but my twisted little mind has been trying to concoct something more functional. :D
