Some Ways to Stop Unwanted Guitar String Noise

Insufficient coordination between left and right hand

Chances are that if you play the string with your right hand, you have one or more strings have not pressed with the fingers of your left hand with sufficient force against the neck. Read our advices and tips for the basic position of your left hand and your right hand to play Yamaha Fg700S guitar.

The solution is theoretically simple: make sure that all non-open string you want to press is in good contact with the neck of the key at the moment the fingers of your right hand strike strings. This result can be achieved slowly through the handles exercise and thereby make sure that you practice each finger with sufficient pressure on the underlying nerve. Make sure you do not press the string unnecessarily hard, because this reduces the flexibility to play and can lead to injuries. The aim is to find exactly the right pressure at which the well string is pressed against the key.

Wrong technique when inserting or lifting of the fingers on the left hand

Make sure the string is always pushed the button vertically downwards. Let your finger like a helicopter on the belt countries. Many people, however, tend to slide their finger as a plane to be inclined downwardly to land and then slide another piece of the runway (in this case, the string) before coming to a stop. It is bound to be a lot of friction.

Imagine that you want to put a finger on the fourth position on the D string to the second position on the A string. The tendency is to take the shortest route, while slanting to position on the A-string is great. In this approach, there is a lot of friction occurs on the string, and is the probability of an unintended large sub sound. It is better to focus to position of your finger carefully over the place where you want to push the string with the finger. Let your finger as it was a taking off helicopter. If you could bring up the finger diagonally, you run a greater risk of unintended noises.

Unnecessarily heavy sliding on strings while playing

Usually it’s your left hand which caused a nasty sound when sliding on one the wrapped strings. What if the squeaky, scratchy or raspy noise is caused by sliding a finger of your left hand on the bass strings? For example if you are using barre chords to play your position?

This kind of slide over a certain string is often aimed at improving the monitoring of changing the handles. Classical guitarists tend to adopt the following three solutions:

  • Lift the finger that you want to shove, only very lightly on the string. While doing so, however contact with that guitar string.
  • Do not slide your finger itself, but with the side of the fingertip in Seagull S6. Do this after you have removed the pressure of the finger on the string by which finger to lift a little bit.
  • Try scrolling with the soft ‘cushion’ of your fingertip which leads to a better result.


Buy a guitar for beginners: what Kind, Brand and Price?

Buy a guitar? This is obviously very personal choice. One will find a red guitar beautiful, while the other a black and another blue. This choice, though easy to make, but the choice in a guitar brand and type of guitar is often a bit more difficult, so … I’m going to tell you a lot easier way in this article.

Buy a guitar, but what kind, brand and what price

Opt for a Spanish or Western guitar?

First let me emphasize that I recommend everyone to start on an acoustic guitar! Broadly speaking there are two types of acoustic guitars: the Spanish (classical) guitar and western guitar.

The Spanish guitar has nylon strings, a typical Spanish sound and a wider neck. For children, teenagers or people with short fingers, this type of guitar can cause problems.

Western guitar, however, has steel strings and a narrower neck. The sound is often harder and fuller, which is nice. Also, the guitar strings on a Western guitar can be replaced much easier than with a Spanish guitar. I therefore advise you to buy an Western acoustic guitar.

What guitar brand should I choose?

Best Guitar BrandsBig brands for acoustic guitars include Martin, Fender, Gibson, Taylor, Takamine and Ovation. These are therefore a bit more expensive. For a best beginner guitar in this category you have to consider between € 150, and € 300.

Cheaper beginners guitars include Crafter, Vintage, Yamaha and Ibanez. For a beginner guitar in this category you have to consider between € 50, and € 150

In both cases, I would purchase a suitcase / guitar bag. A scratch on your first guitar hurts you… no matter what it cost.

The issues when buying a guitar

In acoustic guitars range, there are also types that can be strengthened, also called semi-acoustic guitars

Sometimes you also see that there is a crescent from the wood at the front view of your guitar or at the bottom, called a cutaway. This allows you to get easier access to the higher notes. This is used mostly by guitar solos

How many guitar solos you think you can play as a beginner? Right! ZERO. At the attention you have to realize that something “extra” on your guitar and therefore costs money! A guitar without these extras, for example, € 150,  is often better than a guitar with these “extras” for the same price!

Little extras expenses for beginners

Buy direct a tuner and a metronome on board (a must!).

Note that you buy a stand for an acoustic guitar and not a power

Finally, buy a few picks of different thicknesses. These costs often only € 1 each. Tell the seller that you are a beginner guitarist.

Finally, I would say that there are definitely guitars for under € 150, – but then you will find that a bad idea. A cheap guitar out of tune very quickly and often sounds thin. A few months after purchasing, you will have to take them to maintenance.

Good luck with your purchase!
