So I was playing my guitar today, and when I played the 19th and 20th frets, on the g-string i discovered they rang the same note...

basically, the 19th fret, and the 20th fret are both playing a D, as opposed to a (19th) D and a (20th) D#.

does anyone know what's wrong and what I could do to fix it?
please and thanks!

(btw, is "rang" a word?)
raise the action on the g string if you know how

Thats weird, I would expect them both to sound a D# which would mean that the 19th fret is lower than the 20th fret...
Or, if you go to the right people or know how to do it without maiming your guitar, you could have the 20th fret filed down so the 19th can ring better. Could have disastrous consequences though. You're probably better off raising the action first and see how that goes.


I don't know how they can both play a D, not a D#. That makes no sense to me, but I don't see how this can be solved.

Anyway, good luck
Half-Step tuned up otherwise it's impossible.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.
