I am a noob, :P

I have just started on the guitar, been playing for around 2 months, and i have a very annoying problem.

Basically, on frets 10-18ish on the b, g and d strings i get this really annoying buzzing noise, don't tell me i'm fretting it wrong because i have tried many positions and pressures and it still buzzez no matter what.

I have a Squier strat, maybe it's the strings? How often should i be changing the strings?

Thanks in advance.

Squier guitars tend to buzz a lot. Thats why I exchanged mine for this Yamaha.

I wouldnt say that it is the strings. It seems that there is a chunk in your guitar that buzzes. Like you said, its the 10-18 fret on the B, G, and D strings, which if you look at a guitar, is a rectangle shape that tends to buzz. I would get it checked out wherever you bought the guitar.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

Tighten these screws on that particular strings, accordingly and slowly to raise your action.
