Does it matter at all which way you cross up for mutes. I personally cross right foot over left foot, and grab with my left hand, but I noticed im magazines, and movies, that most people cross left foot over right and greab with their right hand. I was just thinking that if your spinnign to the right it might be easier to cross left over right so that it goes against the spin.
There is certainly no 'standard' so do whatever you want. I cross left over right and grab right because it feels comfortable doing it that way. Same with spinning clockwise or counter clockwise, some ppl feel more comfy spinning it one way than the other, and youll see most peeps spinning it counter, but that doesnt mean if you spin the other way it is wierd.
I think you're supposed to grab with right hand if spinning left. If you grab left handed and spin left that's called an 'opposite hand mute 3' at least the dude on skiingmotion calls it that. They're a bit harder.
