OK so when I record, my set up is guitar to computer pretty much with a few things in between. POint: no micing amp or anything. The sound is completeley 100% what I am playing;a clean signal. When I finish recording, I will add distortion with a VST plug in and it sounds ok... But since it is such a clean signal it picks up EVERYTHING. The string movements and all the annoying unwanted stuff. And after listening to alot of famous bands like AFI, Sum41, Puddle of Mudd, even FOB( I hate them), they all have the simplest sound. there is not sound transitioning from chord to chord etc. Its just a perfectly distorted progression. Same thing goes for the bass. Do they edit the things out, or is it micing an amp that makes the difference? Thanks

noob question I know, but we've all been there, right?

It's sitting here in front of my face.. I'll try it out I guess. I thought it was the recording though.

Cut out the sound between licks in your editing program. You can also use a noise gate to roll off any noises below a certain level.

Or, not trying to be a dick or anything, it could just be your sloppy playing?

Use less distortion.

And also, if you listen carefully to professional records, you can still here the noise of strings scrathing .etc. You just don't notice.

Soundclips?
