oh yea, there got a few notes that sounded muted or not played well... so, use distortion man....cover them up. at least that's what i'll do.
yea, when I do fast runs, I always palm-mute the low strings, so it wouldn't sound so boomy. You might be referring to those. And you're right, distortion will help to bring the muted notes out better.
the live version in the Ozzy Tribute album is one of the most spine-tingling in rock history...check it out!
