Cycle solo question
Well I have struggled all the way through your Cycle Solo at 145 bpm and I have a quick question. On page 11 measure 11, when I lift my little finger off of the F# note the open B string rings in a discordant manner. I have tried muting the 2nd string with the 3rd finger holding down the D note on the 3rd string, but that leaves then very little time to transition to the D note on the 2nd string, 3rd fret. Any suggestions how to correct this? I watched you play it and you do it effortlessly without any stray notes! Thanks

Sorry for the late reply! I'm in the middle of moving to a new place so I haven't been able to catch up with the forum the past few days.
Thanks for your question!
The way that some notes and open strings react when playing certain parts using open strings all depends on the strings, action of the strings and the guitar. Just out of curiosity, did you try the same lick on another instrument to see if it might be a guitar "set up" thing, or try changing strings? Sometimes when I get weird overtones etc from open strings, I've changed strings and it solves the problem.
Let me know if this works, but try with another instrument first to see if this happens.
Have a wonderful day Doug, keep pickin' that tune! :)
@emilernebro Thanks for your answer regarding my question. I just changed strings and still have the same results. I believe it is my fat fingers and perhaps callouses on them causing the overtones. I'll just have to try out different muting options...
