Guitar Mute tool 

http://www.foroflamenco.com/tm.asp?m=189147&p=5&tmode=1&smode=1

From the above topic, I had problems with my i finger,
I received the guitar mute from edguerin several months back.
I would like to say that it helped alot.

When it arrived, the tension was quite high so I loosen the strings slightly,
and from months of doing exercises while being at work eg p i m a, a m i etc etc
and picado for the i to move properly without curling
My finger has improved alot. It is also good to practice rasgueados.

I put it on my lap and hold it with my left hand and let my elbow rest on a table to mimic the body of the guitar.

hope this would help someone.

I had one but the headstock collapsed - don't have the strings too tight. Useful aid.

Neolithic Model 1A
This one is a hand me down from Florian via Marduk to me...seen better days...think Sal made it...string tension gone no matter how many nails, screws or glue applied..
yours looks schmick...so how about a link and cost?
you'll get the wierdest looks from drivers when practicing rasqueado in the car at traffic lights, one of shock, disgust and disbelief......what do they think we're doing???

Can you really call it work if practice guitar all day ;)

I tried one of these 2 years ago and it did not feel natural, difficult, because it was not in the normal position, even though the one I tried had a neck band to hold it higher. But I imagine you get used to it.

Man.....that looks like it was made by the Abbos a very long time ago..

You'd probably get a good price for it on eBay, although you'd probably get investigated by the Australian Board of Antiquities too.

cheers,

Ron

It good that i went to work at a new place where it's a lot quieter.
On the wkends and evening shifts, I even bring my sindonido in to practice.

THe guitar mute is really helpful for finger movements..
