everytime i try and play my acoustic (im a nub) i get alot of buzzing, in single notes and chords

i dont know whether its me or the guitar.. halp

EDIT: i should probably mention that i have proper technique and hold the strings close to the frets etc

you definitely need to press the string down to the fret. not just close, like you said. i'm pretty sure you meant you did press it all the way down, but just making sure.

anyway, chances are the problem is that your action (strings over the fretboard) is too low. you might need to get the guitar set up. i'd let somebody you know who has played guitar for a while look at it. ask them if the strings are too low if you're not sure. hope you get the guitar sorted out!
