I've been trying to approximate that dry, crisp rhythm sound I hear on Romane's Acoustic Quartet, French Guitar and the Rosenberg's new Roots CDs. (These are all GREAT CDs by the way).
Love that sound, but try as I might, I can't get enough muting on the sharp accents. The rhythm I hear is very dry, only a hint of the chord voicing itself. My approximation is too much chord, too much jaggling of strings. I'm trying to mute with the left hand and occasionally get it. Full six string voicings seem to help because then all six strings can be muted by the left hand. Are they possibly adding right hand palm mute?
