Every time I play a part in a song where I do a lot of pull offs (not including tapping)
when I pull off, the string vibrates really bad and the sound it makes is horrible and loud.
I've tried to pull off more gentle and it still does it.

Solutions?

Guitar basics forum maybe?


What do you mean? Care to elaborate a bit more?

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

When I do pull offs, I was taught to pull the string just a little bit so when I let go, you get the sound of the whatever is fretted behind it.
In my case, nothing is fretted so it should make an open note.
But it doesn't.

Possibly your guitar?
Does it only do that with one string or is it all?
My guess would be possibly buzzing on the frets if the action is set too low OR
Maybe your playing with two much gain to close to the amp.
And are you using single coils or humbuckers?

I'm about 7 feet away from my amp on a low volume.
Does it with all the strings.
I have the gain up, but I've tried it without and with a different setting.
I'm using humbuckers.

Lower gain would help a bit, but the real problem is probably hitting the other strings with a part of your fretting hand. Whenever becker did it while yo-yoing he had his amp on extremely low gain, but it does help to have your picking hand near the bridge to try and mute whatever rings out.

Same, I did that once when I just started playing, I replaced the strings on a guitar and the bridge was loose so I tighted it like an Idiot and messed it up, had to have the guitar tech fix it. lol I love the younger days
