i'm playing my friends acoustic he left at my house
and the D on the high E string (10th fret) won't play
it makes a harsh metallic noise. everything else on the guitar is fine
what's up with that?
dead fret?

that means the fret after it, so the 11th i think, is actually higher then the tenth fret, so it hits that instead of the note you are playing.
just give me a fender and let me rip
just sand down the fret a little tiny bit, you can even do it by bending the string constantly over that fret.

but just make sure to see if im right, like hold the note and look at all the other frets to see if the string is touching them before your note.
i could be wrong, but its doubtful lol
