ok, so ive been playing for five years so far, and ive decided that the reason that im not making the progress that i should be is that my technique sucks ass. i have a hell of a time making shifts up and down the neck and i still have strings that buzz when im playing... so i need some advice on how to improve my technique...

First, make sure your action isn't too low, that might be causing the buzzing.

Besides that, I think maybe the way you press down on the strings causes the buzzing. For example, I need to raise my index finger with barre chords so that the note on the G string wouldn't be muted/buzzing.

i being confusing, i meant that strings that i just finished picking will ring out when i dont want them to.

Take your finger off of the fret and stop the string from vibrating

In that case I suggest that you keep practicing on your picking technique. Also you can mute the strings by lightly pressing down on them to stop them from vibrating.
