A Lesson on Muting Strings During Cross-String Trills – In this lesson I cover the difference in technique and sound between single-string trills and cross-string trills as well as the resulting pitch and harmonic intervals. Not muting your cross-string trills can result in a very unfavourable sound after the execution is over. Trills build harmonic tension both in the chord and between the two pitches but after the resolution you want to mute out the dissonance upper auxiliary.
