I have a question:

When I play leads, such as the solo from Seize The Day by A7X or November Rain by Guns 'N' Roses, my notes don't sustain. They go for a little bit, then start buzzing or just fade out really quickly.

Is this a problem with my technique, or is it my **** amp? Currently, I'm playing through a 40W Maxturbo (worst amp ever) my parents bought me on eBay years ago when I started out with a BOSS ME30 plugged into it.

I'm hoping it's the amp, so it'll be problem solved when my Vypyr 75 arrives.
I have the same problem. but I assume that the key is the sustain effect pedal.. and I also heard that some guitar have sustain effect in itself
Recommend me any good post-hardcore band
There's not really any such thing as a "sustain" pedal, you get them for keyboards, not guitars. TS, the problem is going to be a combination of any or all of the following things...a rubbish amp, old strings, a badly setup guitar, poor technique, poor EQing.
Actually called Mark!

Well I'm pretty sure the guitar is set up fine, but I'm putting new strings on it within the next week when I get time so that'll be fine.

I just tried it again... the note plays for a few seconds, then goes really screechy and buzzy. My EQ is set to about 7 Bass, 7 Mid and 6 Treble through the ME30. The amp is absolutely terrible, however, so hopefully that's it. From memory I didn't have this problem playing through my mate's Fender FM212.

Thanks mate.
