Ok - Need a quick and simple answer to this.

How do you palm-mute properly? I can never seem to do it right - well it doesn't seem to sound right anyway.

Tips?

Any help is thoroughly appreicated.

Oh I am. Amybe help from someone else would've helped? But then you'd probably have to owe them a favour.

With difficulty. I'm right handed, but had to take it with my left hand. And seeing as the camera is designed for right hands it was really difficult to not cover the lens.

So be impressed.

Thats the ticket - Cheers 'biggles.

Before I was resting my palm quite a distance from the bridge - thus making it sound nothing like anything.

Bah the numbers are all messed up. Powerchords, they were, from the 8th fret for four beats, then the 3rd for four beats then from the 1st for four beats.

That shows you how to lay your hand on the bridge.

Shows you how it looks mid pick.

Play something like: 10 10 10 10 5 5 5 5 3 3 3 3
10 10 10 10 5 5 5 5 3 3 3 3
8 8 8 8 3 3 3 3 1 1 1 1

It should give a sort of Blink 182 style sound. If you get that your doing it right. To get more of a chunk slide the edge of your palm up the strings a bit, to get less move more over the bridge.
