    Hi all :)

    I am going through some exercizes in a book and the author refers to stopping notes by releasing the fretted finger. I have always used the picking hand to do this. When I tried, I wasn't able to stop the note immediately-it produced some kind of nasty buzz/after-note. Can anyone help?!

    Thanks! ;)

    I also use my picking hand for damping individual notes. For chords, i find it easier to use the fretted fingers but that's just me. It's a case of pure practice

    PRACTICE... it's when you can put your hand on the fret board and depending on how much pressure you exert determines the degree and quality of noise supression.
