Hey all
Just have two quick questions
1 - sometimes i hear guitarists play, on songs or live, and they play a note then after a while it starts to give feedback. How does this happen? And how do you do it?
2 - How do you reduce picking noise on recording? Shall i just turn the gain down? Or is there a technique?
Thanks
Tom

generally great amounts of feedback are caused by high gain while your amp is being pushed to its higher volume levels, holding your guitar closer to your amp while holding that note will sometimes cause it to happen more quickly but generally high gain and high volume is the main cause

gain will not so much be the cause for you hearing a lot of pick noise on a recording, usually a high treble setting makes pick noise more prevalent, try using a more well rounded tone either by bringing your bass and mids up or simply lowering your treble.. you could also play with your tone knob on your guitar as rolling it back will give you a warmer, smoother tone
