Sliding sounds between chords

For lo-fi I just want to hear the chords of my guitar being played but it seems the sound of my fingers sliding from chord to chord is just as loud as the chords themselves. I'm using an electric guitar plugged into an audio interface which is connected to my laptop. Is there an easy way of solving this problem?

Yeah.....likely you need to learn how to mute the strings with your pick hand palm as you move from chord to chord. Is this the first time you've heard yourself playing electric guitar on a recording? If so....it's natural to be surprised and hear more than you thought before. Post a sample here when you can. We might be able to give you more targeted advice.

2 cents worth of.....flat strings are quieter.....but don't sound the same....you know?

Yes, I guess it is the first time. I've never heard of flat strings!
