Hey everybody, I was playing my guitar and for the past year or so, and I noticed a problem. Any time I play on the 4th fret of the E string continuously with high gain, I hear this terrible, high-pitch harmonic that just sounds awful. Sadly, the Internet has not been able to help me yet. I have tried muting the other strings, picking at different places on the string, and even changing how I pick the string. I can't seem to solve this problem on my own. Has anybody had this issue before, and does anybody know how to fix it? This is killing my tone every single time I play this riff. Any help would be appreciated!

Actually, I have tried it with a clean sound and still heard it faintly. What could be touching the string? My hands are pretty much off the string with the exception of my finger fretting it.

A high fret would be my guess.

A weird answer could just be that the note is the resonating freq of the guitar itself. Does something similar happen with that same note in a different octave/position? My HM strat gets all sorts of weird harmonic overtones with B, which is actually kinda cool.

Otherwise, yep high fret.
