Blues Strums and Muting for Guitar
Can someone tell me how to write blues strums for guitar? I'm a little familiar with 12-bar blues, but when I try to write it it just comes out as 1, 2, 3, 4 and I know that it isn't blues. My other problem is I don't know how to insert muting symbols. In fact, I can't find them on the palette.
I have tried looking in the handbook for the solutions, however it wasn't specific enough.
Any help will be appreciated.
