Right, so whenever I play a B on my guitar, my low E string will start vibrating and humming. It's not just when I hit the B string, either. On any of the first 5 strings, a B note causes the low E string to hum. It kind of sounds like a really annoying reverb effect.

It's nothing I can't live with, it's just really bugging me. I've never heard of anybody having a problem like this before. Should I just restring my guitar, or what?

Try restringing. I've had some strings resonate with others, but never as much as you say.


It's actually not too bad, but it's definately noticable. I'll try restringing, thanks.

Just another question; If I were to go out and buy the same brand of strings that I have on my guitar now, would I get the same problem? Or does it not have anything to do with the brand?

Resonance.
Look it up.
A frequency of a B note can cause any object with the natural frequency corresponding to E to resonate. I think D and G do the same thing too.
Also, I have no idea what caused the other strings to make E resonate. Wierd.

That's interesting, thanks. So I guess that mean that it happens to everyone, and that I just noticed it? And restringing won't really do anything for it, right?

Try muting the lower strings when playing on the upper strings, it helps a lot.
