    it is a 1986 Heritage H140 made in the old Gibson factory in Kalamazoo. It is not a Gibson Les Paul.

    this is usually a self learned and an aquired skill that comes with time i used to play with my hand away from the strings and just let every thing ring out and it sounded horrible until i got the idea to mute them with my palm it usually happens with a lot of beginning guitarist


  • stratoman · July 22, 2012 at 8:56 am

    You are correct. I was also playing some harmonics while demonstrating the palm muting. They are right hand harmonics which are done with the pick and fingernail and will be the focus of a lesson in the future. Thanks for checking out my videos and please subscribe if you have not already. It’s easy. You can do it.

    Harmonics maybe?


  • ThePereginPigeon · July 22, 2012 at 10:45 am

    sometimes i feel like maybe their muting the note way up on the higher noted end of the guitar neck, and then pulling the hand back to the original hand position, i just don’t know.  i wish i could explain this better…thanks for replying though :)


  • ThePereginPigeon · July 22, 2012 at 11:27 am

    ah, it’s not a slur…i know i’m having a hard time explaining the motion lol. the left hand moves horizontally with the guitar neck after a note is played, and the hand moves up the guitar neck (towards the 12th fret) and then back down to where the hand was originally (like 2nd fret)….and the motion is usually really fast, and done mostly on electric guitar.


  • stratoman · July 22, 2012 at 11:43 am

    It sounds like you are referring to a slur. The purpose of that would be for the sound not hand alignment. The least amount of movement is best to achieve efficiency. I hope that answers your question.


  • ThePereginPigeon · July 22, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    one question I’ve got is what is it called when you slide the left hand up (towards the higher notes) and back down after playing a note? i’ve seen it done only on electric guitar and its usually lightning fast. is the purpose of it just to realign the hand or what?


  • stratoman · July 22, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    You are perceptive.

    It is a 1986 Heritage H140 built in the old Gibson Plant in Kalamazoo Michigan fitted with Gibson Classic 57 tuxedo pickups and refretted by John Carruthers.

    I sold my Les Paul Custom ‘coz this thing was sooooo much better.


  • GuitarMan3292 · July 22, 2012 at 12:44 pm

  • stratoman · July 22, 2012 at 1:43 pm
