All my strings vibrate in a circular motion when I pluck them, but my G string vibrates side to side.

Is this an Intonation problem?

Does your G-String always vibrate side-to-side, or only when you're shaking your ass.

What would this have to do with intonation?!

tension makes strings oscillate differently, it has absolutly nothing to do with intonation, end of story.

a lot more than you think. but to TS: i think it just looks like that because the human eye has problems detecting vibrations. play each string at the 12th fret. if all the notes are perfectly in tune than the intonation is fine.

It's not the intonation. Intonation is adjusting the length of the string to get precise tuning across the fretboard, not only the open string. Your problem may not even be a problem. How does the G string sound compared to the other strings? does it buzz against the frets? If there is no problem with way it sounds/feels then you shouldn't worry about it.

C'mon, man. We're just kidding. We all know that drummers are important.

After all, without drummers, who would bag my groceries?

The previous owner kept the guitar in the case for a few years, the E A D strings are still silver, but the G B E strings have grayed a bit.

Silver? Is it a nylon string guitar?

Electric O_O


I was describing the colour, not material


@ Bean-o: When you pluck the string, they will make "sound" lol, and then slowly die out. But when I pluck the G- String it sounds like it's cutting in and out. I was playing un-plugged.
