When I play the F power chord on the E string

I sounds awful and muddy, like something really bad out of tune (but the guitar is in tune) and there's fret buzz, which cultivates worst around the lowest frets. It's pretty well unnoticeable, unless I'm unplugged, but the F sticks out like a sore thumb.

I'm wondering if it could be a setup problem, particularly with the action. I'm using a Jackson Randy Rhoads JS30RR, and it's still set up from the factory using 9s. I'm playing in standard tuning just so you know.

could be, if there is fret buzz, you may need to have it set-up

i suggest taking it to a tech, and seeing what he thinks

1. You could try new strings
2. Maby your not pressing hard enough
3.You may say it's in tune but i'll be its not
4.Go have it set up at a GC or Samash for 50$

It's a powerchord, it's meant to sound that way.


But honestly, it could be your intonation. WAAYYY off intonation.

this. take a tuner and play just an F note, is it pretty damn close/in-tune? now try the C, then try the octave. if they're all close to/in tune, then you're set and there's something else wrong. maybe you're fretting too hard on 1 or 2 strings causing 1 or 2 notes to go sharp?
