respected guitarists on this forum,
ive recently encountered a new problem with my guitar.
whenever i play fast on the higher e string(the thin 1)...the lower e string(thick 1) goes into vibration without me even touching it creating a buzz
how do i sort out the problem
i have an ibanez grg170dx(ok guitar)marshall mg 15cd(disgrace of an amp) through a digitech rp80 effects pedal(useless piece of trash)

has it something to do with the pickup,the,guitar,amp,pedal...that i can sort out?
all the help will be deeply appreciated
thanking all in anticipation

it's just because the two strings are the same note, i think. it might also be too much distortion, but i'm not sure

ok how would them being the same note cause one to vibrate without touching it? Id say its just a crappy guitar

sound is vibrations...so the sound actually vibrates the other strings. You just gotta learn how to play and mute strings your not playing

exactly and to the threadstarter emgs will make it even worse if you dont know how to mute the strings becasue they are high output pick ups. and dont put good pickups in a ****e guitar.

Erm... any guitar that cost more than $260. For more detailed help, post genre preferences, playing experience/style and price range

im a med student..busy studying most of the times .and hardly practice guitar...but love my guitar to the core of my heart..so 1 and 1/2 years of mine is like 6 months of you people..
i can mute strings....but it gets irritating at times....to concentrate on muting rather than playing well
and i am dearly greatful to all the people who took their time off to help me out..
really appreciate it...may u all get what u desire in life
u people are really helpful...just on the basis of this site ive progressed from a n00b to a semi n00b and pretty much will be out of n00bness soon

a big thank you to all....

You just have to practise until you no longer have to think concentrate on muting really.

An upgrade from $260 to $300 really won't make a huge difference. I mean that's what 15-20 quid? Nah, that's like the cost of a couple of pots. We're talking a much bigger price jump for a noticeable difference in terms of performance.

Ah, India. Sorry, didn't look at your location thing. Well in that case, sure, go ahead with $300!

blackjack84, the "buzz" could be coming from the low E tuner - check that it's not loose.
