when im playing a solo, i find myself almost always accidently rubbing other strings, not the fingertips like i messed up, just like when the side of my finger accidently touches it and it produces an unwanted sound...how do i stop doing this?

u mute the strings u dun want to ring with ur palm maybe?
maybe too much gain

That happened to me too. Try raising your action. 9 times out of 10, if its not your playing style, it's the the way your guitar is set up.

u just gotta work on it tho. basically
if ur gonna play high gain, u can't resist the noise if ure touching the strings
so u just have to work hard not to touch the strings.

try hitting the strings at a more vertical angle.

Slow right down and concentrate on your technique, and turn down the gain a bit.

Why would turning down the gain help? He'll still be hitting othe strings, but not noticing. So when he turns the gain back up nothing would have changed.

Just practise more or change your technique.
