choking the strings??

Thursday, February 21, 2019

Got a question hope someone can help me with. How does Ron Block choke the strings so much in his playing and never seems to go out of tune while playing? Most the time when I choke the strings while playing I get out of tune a little bit. I've read and tried rubbing the lead of a pencil in the grooves in the nut helps some but not enough.
