————- Hello, I am pretty much a newbie and i’m trying to play some power chords. I use my 1st and 4th finger to play what’s below. ————- ——–5xxx- –5xxx–5xxx- –5xxx–3xxx- –3xxx——- My problem is that the last string never rings. No matter how hard i push down on my pinky, i can’t get a clean tone out of it. My second problem is the palm muting. It seems like such a simple thing but it just never sounds like it’s supposed to. Any advice?
