Hey fellas....

I was just wondering, does anyone else has a problem playing (especially sliding) on low E string? I find it that the string always slides off the fret and makes an awful noise.

Reason why I ask is because I think my guitar might not be well set up and I read that if it is badly set up then playing some strings maybe difficult. So I was wondering if it could be that or if its just my poor technique

Thanks for all the replies in advance

Just remember to use the lightest possible touch ever... I played acoustic for a while and developed a heavy press with my finger. When I got my electric, I accidentally bent every string I tried to fret because I was pushing so hard.

It's a good thing to start early on
