What do you do If your playing a song With say a Strat (only 21 frets) that requires you to use the 23 fret?

you play the note on a higher string, and if not possible, you either bend, try some cool tap harmonic -thingy over the fretboard, or come up with another note that sounds cool in the original one's stead... or then you cry and wish you had a guitar with 24 frets.

Drop the lick down an octave. You won't get accurate tone out of that steep of a bend. That's pretty much it, other than playing another guitar.
I play guitar in a ska band.

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

Man, thank God the russians created UG. Otherwise, how would I have gotten this information?

Im playing around on my charvel and doing the solo for seek and destroy btw just to let yall know. but the part im on is on the high E already so I cant drop it a octave. I could just play it on my 7 string but Im really digging the tone on my charvel for this song.

Whammy pedal.

Or use your Hellraiser to play that song. I'm assuming that if you need a note that high you're probably shredding, so I'd be using the Hellraiser for that stuff anyway.

Usually when you hit a note that high you only hit it really quickly, quick enough that you can kinda just fake it.

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden
