Okay, so right now I'm changing my strings
and I have E and A on so far and they're buzzing
everytime I pick them.
I know the buzzing is coming from the nut.
But I dont know why.
It's pissing me off because I'm a tone lover.
They only buzz when they're picked open and
on frets one and two.

raise your action? what kinda guitar do you have? My old classical acoustic does that on the b and e so I had to put paper under the nut below those strings.

That normally happens when you change strings and stuff, don't worry. Just play the strings a bit, and it should go away.

ok now that all the strings are on, tune up and get them to hold a tune.

then when you are sure they are broken in a little, make sure the bridge is level (if trem)

and answer, did you change string gauge?


after they hold a tune, if the strings still buzz at the first couple of frets, repost and ill help you set up the guitar.

No I didnt change the gauge and the buzzing is gone but the high E has almost no sustain
at all.

if it's a strat style then use a tiny allen wrench on the front face of that saddle to adjust the two pegs and raise that string.

if it's a TOM then you can loosen the bridge posts and raise the thumbscrews under it to raise the entire bridge.
