String resonance issues

Hey all

So i was jamming on my guitar yesterday, and noticed i have som really bad string resonance. This is with high gain.

The g string is particular bad. If i fret the g-note on my thin e-string (15th fret), the g-string resonated as loud as the actually picked string. The problem also exists with other notes, for example the D-string resonates when picking a high D note on the B-string (15th fret).

And as i said, the resonance isnt just a faint resonance. Its just as loud, as if i actually picked it.

The guitar in use is an Ibanez RG321 MH.

Is there something i can do to get rid of this?

Simply take a piece of a rag or cloth and stuff it between the headstock on the strings.

This- or wrap a bandana or something around the headstock/strings beyond the nut

Wait, are you saying that simply fretting the string creates the same sound as if you just did a hammer-on at that fret? And you're playing high gain stuff?

You might just want to back away from the amp. You're generating a feedback loop.

No, not really

If i pick the thin e-string on the 15th fret (thats a G), and mute it right away, the guitar keeps singing the G, because the G-string as activated itself. Does that make any sense?

And as i said, its not just a slight ring. It is as loud and pronounced as if i never let the 15th fret go.

And im playing this thought JamupPro on my iPhone with headphones, so no feedback here.
