OK this one is driving me nuts, and I couldn't seem to find any threads on it.
Lets say you are playing a quick palm muted 2 string F# power chord. I am usually inclined to play these with my first and fourth finger using the second and third to help dampen after the chord is played.
My problem is that every time I stop the chord, my first and fourth finger make an audible sound when releasing. I have spent the last few days obsessing over these little release sounds, and I am not getting anywhere. I understand in a band situation I don't here these noises, but on a recording i can pick it up, and I usually have to cut it out on my DAW.
If you don't care about your string life, eat some fried chicken before you play and don't wash your hands. Other than that... practice, and accept that some noises are unavoidable.
