Right, so I was practicing the solo to stairway to heaven, and at the bend on the high E string (can't remember the fret) it sounds funny, almost like it's buzzing before the bend.

So I was playing around, and it seems like there's a slight buzz on that fret, and the 2 or 3 below it.


Is this a problem?

EDIT: Only happens on the 8th fret.

How low is your action, what frets this on and what guitar do you have

Just means it's buzzing, very common problem, doesn't mean your guitar will explode.

Haha, I wouldn't expect it to explode.

I'll go check to see exactly what frets.

I've never adjusted the action (or anything for that matter, I just got it)

look at the green link in my sig.

check the action and if needed look at the fret see if there's a kink in the string or fret.

Maybe you need to change your strings also

well, look for a dent, kink, high crooked fret.

sometimes raising the action a little can compensate for this.
sometimes changing stock strings is necessary.

Yeah once they get a bit crusty and used you can run into some buzzing

Id change them first before taking any actions just yet

I'd recommend using a buzzsaw to cut through that buzzing. Worked on my ex-wife. [/troll]
