The most prominent use of palm muting can be found in hard rock and metal music, so I structured the lesson to be geared towards that type of sound. However, even if hard rock and metal isn't your thing, you should still try your best to master this technique. It allows you much more control over dynamics and control of how the string feels when picked. You would be hard pressed to find a guitar style that doesn't use some sort of palm muting.
Be sure to keep a very light touch in your picking hand, that way you can get the full muting sound without completely killing the notes or pulling yourself out of tune.
