Proper key for "Highway to Hell"?

Wow, thanks everyone!
I knew something sounded off but I couldn’t really tell what. I assumed it was just something with my gear or my playing…

While we discuss the song, any tips for muting the open A when moving to the open E?
(It shows up first in the 6th measure of chorus 2)

Can’t use a fretting finger behind it or keeping the fretting finger slightly on (it’s an open string).

I suppose the best is to try a plucking hand mute but because I need to pluck the open E it is like a finger twister!
(And when I don’t mute it sounds quite rumbly and messy)

Maybe I don’t understand the question correctly, but why can’t you just mute it by resting a couple of fretting fingers on the A string when moving to the E string?

You understand the question perfectly.
I guess the only reason is practice, or lack thereof…
:slight_smile:

The accuracy for both time and positioning make it such that I end up interfering with the open E or the following F#.

I just need to practice it more, but was wondering if anyone has any more specific tips.
