Hi everyone,

I was recently looking at the tabs for "Fire"
by Hendrix and the intro has a series of two
note "chords" where when you strum, you have to
skip one of the strings. I tried this and found
it hard to do with using a pick, and Lyle's video
of the riff shows him picking the in-between
string (and probably muting it).

This got me thinking that I've seen this kind of
tab many times and I always wonder. When you strum
several strings and there's one in the middle you
have to skip, is that string muted, or do literally
skip it by lifting the pick in the middle of the
strumming motion? Anyone know?

Thanks for the help.

If its a chord you're strumming then you mute it with your fretting hand.

easy. it's playing octaves. i'm using index and ring finges (1st and 3d). the way you place the 3d finger, you mute the unnecessary string with its side--I place mine at an angle. Then you can "strum" the 3 strings but only hear two.
