I got an Ibanez RG350 a few days ago and i like it alot but i just noticed, that when i hit say the first string on the guitar , the 5th and 6th strings vibrate just barely, but its quite annoying when im using a distortion that picks up those vibrations and i have to mute them out continuosly, anyone know why they might be vibrating even though i am not touching them?

If by the first string you mean the one lowest from your body (because that is correct), then you should be muting the fifth and sixth strings anyway, to stop any cause of unwanted noise, if you mean the other way round, then I don't know.

You do realise sympathy was a sarcastic comment? And I don't think it's harmonic resonation, and I doubt he knows what that it either...

Sympathy may have been sarcasm but it was close to what the answer probably is.

It's something called sympathetic vibrations, the idea is that a thing vibrating at one frequency can start other things vibrating at the same frequency, or in this case 2 octaves down, the best thing to do (and you should be doing this anyway) is to mute the lower strings.

Edit: dammit, someone else got there first.

i wasn't really being sarcastic, i was referring to sympathetic vibrations, and trying to be funny at the same time. :/
I realize my post may have been less than helpful to the TS, hence the Wiki link
