If you look at the notion section in that wiki entry on palm muting it still gives note values eg E F F# G etc ( albeit in tab form) to the palm muted notes - dead notes don't have a value in this way, they are just marked as x.
Breeding mammals with insects is my personal bugbear.

My band made (another) Xmas song: https://soundcloud.com/polarityman/p...in-vallhalla-2
My name's Pauline and I'm a trollaholic.
thanks for all the infos guyz.. It makes a lot of sense now.. I used to play dead note (i.e. muting with left hand) thinking that it is palm muting.. I would always get frustrated when it didn't sound same like in the song.. I would also wonder why it was called palm muting.. Now it all makes sense...
Just to further cloud the water, there is a technique used in trad/folky playing called "dead thumb" playing. It's heard a lot in country blues where you want a driving/thudding alternate bass that doesn't ring out too much and drown the treble strings out.
Link for anyone interested from the magnificent Mr Delta Blues Tips: Dead Thumb and Finger Technique
It is the most shattering experience of a young man's life, when one morning he awakes, and quite reasonably says to himself: "I will never play the Dane"
