Muting Unwanted Strings
When playing the guitar sometimes there are sounds that we don't want. How do we get rid of those sounds? Muting is the answer.
In this video lesson we talk about muting with the left hand while playing chords. 
Learning how to play a chord and also mute a string at the same time is like learning a new chord. It takes a bit of practice to push down a string with one finger while just touching a string with another finger on the same hand.

Here is a short video that shows a basic 4 beat strum. Ukulele players call this the "Island Strum"

Double stops in South City Midnight Lady
A few weeks ago one of my supporters asked about double stops in a Zoom hangout. I didn't feel that I talked very intelligently about that subject at the time.
https://youtu.be/nfLQ2NNf4Sk?t=115
As I was reviewing South City Midnight Lady today I realized that we play double stops in this song. When you click on the video it will take you right to the part where I'm talking about double stops and showing how to use them, although I didn't really describe them in that way in this video.
By the way this is an open G tuning. Watch the video from the beginning if you don't know how to tune that way.
