Whenever I play the first few frets of my string (mostly on the low e,a,d,), I always encounter harmonic noise( the natural harmonics that can be achieved by lightly fretting the fingerboard on certain areas). It is quite obvious, especially when playing riffs on those frets.
Whenever i lift my fretting fingers just by a little the harmonics will ring out...
Also some frets that i play will have the notes along with harmonics...I have already practiced the riff countless times so i dont think my playing skill matters here.

How do i stop it? I dont think my action is too low as there is no fret buzz when i am fretting those areas(even in the clean channel of my amp).

And you're complaining about that? That's awesome!

On a more helpful note... maybe you need to fret harder?

Have a good guitar tech look at it - particularly the nut. The strings may not be seated in the nut slots properly.

im pretty sure im fretting the note hard enough....its when i lift my finger that the harmonics will sound...ITS freaking impossible to avoid the the harmonics even if i lift my finger fast enough. The harmonics are obvious when when i lift my hand slowly

I checked the guitar nut for any small dirt/particles as i also suspect that something above the fretboard is causing it,but so far the nut seems free of any dirt....anyway just wanted to get some opinion before heading to a guitar tech
