When playing certain chords my amp idk how to describe it..Distorts? some notes. I've been playing this chord:
e|--
b|-5
g|-4
d|-6
a|-7
e|--
And it's not completely clear. I'm guessing it has something to do with EQ so what would you suggest doing?

have you tried using you pickup selector in the middle position?

turn down guitar volume.

is it the way the distortion reacts to that chord? Cuz you'll see that when you play weird intervals, or anything that isn't the root and 5th.
Whats the longest word?

^^ actually, i wouldnt completly throw that out. if the intonation was a bit off it could cause some bad overtones and some notes being not quite the right distance a part. dissonance can sometimes sound like a not quite distortion, so that could be it. maybe one of the notes is slightly bent, this could cause the same thing.

if you want to make sure it isnt the amp, try setting the eq flat at 5 and the volume at a moderate level. if that doesnt fix it, it probably isnt the amp overloading or something. could be a bad fret somewhere or a loose saddle. i had a saddle that would buzz on certain notes at one point. so then i guess try all the strings one at a time in those positions to see if it is just a single string causing the problem.

It's a major chord though.

Use a different pickup and roll your volume and or tone back a little maybe
