Muting

Robert,

I am very impressed with your technique, especially in the "Hendrix Style Chords" video.  In the chord progression, you start by hitting the low E string, but quickly the string becomes muted (as it should).  I cannot duplicate this.  Are you primarily muting with your fretting hand or your picking hand? 

I think that muting is so important, but I don't see too many lessons on the subject.  Do you have any muting-related lessons on your site?

Thanks for all that you contribute to the guitar community,

Gary
Houston, TX

Yeah, muting and string control is key to sound like you know the guitar well.

As for that video, well it's a combination of left and right hand technique.
