What about rattling?

29 January 2009 - 01:20 PM

I don't think my strings buzz so much as rattle. When I play the open B, G and A strings I can hear something vibrating, but I'm not sure what it is. Has anyone had this problem, and is it an easy fix?

For the record, I have a telecaster-style Agile left-handed electric guitar. I've owned it a little less than a year and have never changed the strings on it. I tune it every day before I start playing.

Any insights would be helpful. Thanks!

So I've been playing and making slllloooowwww progress at the gee-tar for about 9 months now, and while I still have trouble with chord changes sometimes and timing -- and don't even get me started on the F chord! -- I did make what I thought was a neat discovery.

One day I'm playing around with the E-minor pentatonic scale and I discover that inside the scale are the notes to "Will The Circle Be Unbroken," "Hard Times Come Again No More" and other folk songs. I can only play the melodies to these and don't know what the chords might be, but I was still fascinated to find that such folk songs can be gleaned from just messing around with the notes on a scale.

This may not come as news to the experienced guitarists, but as I said above, I thought it was pretty neato.

Any other epiphanies out there?
