I'm sure this question may be asked a lot, but would a noise suppressor help eliminate accidental string noise? And by that I mean when I'm practicing a scale or some thing you can hear the previous string ring out when I pull off of it to go to the next string.

noise suppressors turn off all sound unless a loud enough signal is running through, not remove the quieter sounds, so providing you are playing the next note clearly, you will still be able to hear the previous string.

best way is to learn how to mute the strings as you leave them with either your fretting hand fingertips or your picking hand

Thank you. I'll definitely have to check out some of the videos on it.

No. The point of the noise gate is to eliminate noise that is not your playing. String noise is technically your playing. You just really gotta work on your technique. That particular aspect of playing is pretty hard, but once you get it down, you'll be a much, much better guitarist for it. Muting technique is really the mark of a good guitarist, IMO. Getting off topic now, but in particular I look at John 5 for this. Just trying to pay attention to him on the Marilyn Manson Guns Gods and Government DVD (which is difficult, obviously because it's Manson, most people don't care about the rest of his band), he has really great technique. Definitely stood out to me.

I'm a good fan of John 5. I've always wanted to pick up his Behind the Player instructional DVD. Do you know if it's any good by chance? Or if his Book of John is any good?

accidental string noise should be muted by the player's hands, not a stompbox

So we are talking about string/fret noise whilst actually playing? A Noise gate won't do shit, that's purely a technique problem. A stompbox is not going to make you play better.
