Hi i've been playing for about 5 months now and I'm starting to get into soloing now. Not anything too hard, just some Black Sabbath like Iron man and Paranoid solos. Well anyway when I play unplugged it sounds great. But when I plug into distortion it sounds very ... muddy, I guess is the best way to put it. I've noticed that even when I am playing on the high strings the low E string vibrates and creates a buzzing noise. The guitar I have is an Ibanez Gio which is a beginner guitar. Do all guitars have this problem of string separation or is it just because mine is a beginner guitar? Also are there any ways to help fix this problem?
You're not very descriptive about your problem. It sounds like you need to practice muting your strings.
Muddiness is a pretty common problem... and I'm pretty sure the biggest cause is ****ty equipment.
Could be lack of muting strings, or you need to balance your EQ.
