Alright, I have a slight problem I noticed when pulling off in certain areas of my guitar. I'm assuming because it's only on certain frets that it's a problem with my guitar rather than a universal problem.

When I do a 7p6 on the G String, I get a ringing sound. I figured it was just bad sustain or whatever, but I found out when I dampen the EA and D strings, it actually goes away and the note sustains fairly well (For an Epi SG Special, anyway).

I was wondering if you had to dampen strings when soloing on all guitars, or is my guitar just junk?

Are you 100% sure you're not accidentally knocking another string when you do that pulloff?
#3
Yes, 100% sure.

I made sure of that multiple times.

It only happens in certain spots. Like, I can 4p3 on the b string and no ringing.

Basic physics, if that string is vibrating at the same frequency, most likely other strings will pick up that frequency. Lets say you're plucking an A note, the top A string may vibrate as the frequencies are the same. You can even try plucking one note on the G,B or E strings, and then mute the string, notice that its not quiet coz other strings vibrate too. Mostly strings that needs dampening or muting are the top 3 strings, the low E, A and G coz they pick up and vibrate easier rather than the bottom 3 strings.

He's right! I just got a new guitar today, (okay new/used, but it was my cousin's. Deal with it you mothers.) and it does that. Trust me. He's right. I figured it out fast enough... Oddly enough, neither my Strat, nor my bass, not even my cheap Bently do that. Only the $1500 Ibanez... Wierd...

I agree with mad picking.

It's really annoying when im pulling of 9p8 on the G string and suddenly it sounds way out of tune, but thats because the E string vibrated, and i made a maj7th double stop

Alright, I'll get more used to muting the strings then.
