: Hey, just wanted to know how I can minimize fret noice when I play. It happens when I let go of the fret, it makes a sound as if I had just hit another string (and no, I'm not hitting another string) However, I just keep getting unwanted noise after I release each fret. How can I help this problem?
Play fretless? ;-)
Actually, what's happening is fairly close to a "pull-off", where the finger/position is changed without the string being plucked/strummed, but allowed to ring from the previous note.
What you need to do is to work on your left-hand fingering technique so that you can release the strings cleanly, and then maybe try some muting with your right hand.
Let me know if this makes sense, ok? Hope it helps!
