Ok, I just bought an MIM strat. Now, when I play one note, and play another on the string above it and let them ring out, they distort in this really weird way. The sound just deteriorates. What is causing this, and how do I fix this?

Yea sounds normal to me, dont think you can fix it

Edit: I's thinking you meant if you bend to notes at the same time, it makes a weird noise through the amp, if so thats fairly normal otherwise Im not sure

I'm assuming your fairly new to guitar and playing music in general,

thats what happens when there's a clash / when 2 nots rub.
#7
Well, not new, but I know as much as teaching myself can know. What do you mean clashing or rubbing, and how is this fixed?
#8
its not a physical thing with the guitar,

if you learn more theory about intivals then it'd help.

or one way of explaining it is to explain the physics behind it, but it might be hard to explain here.

Ok, the song I am learning is Dont Fear the Reaper. Ive perfected the solo, but these noises come on strong when this comes.

yeah, just as i thought.

basically, its all to do with the frequencies of the notes your playing, and so when you play the two 13 notes, the waves interfere with each other and cause the clash or "rub".

i found this video about the sort of thing your having problems with when i was just begging.

its a bit lo-fi and the guy in it seems a bit like a peado but the way he explains whats going on is really good and probably the best i've seen.

WARNING: yeah the videos are ass backwards long but the first 2 are good.
