Hi, I'm new to bass playing, but I've been playing music in various forms for a little over nine years now. I've started off bass about three weeks ago with a Squire P-Bass (P/J pickups).

I've noticed that when I press down on a fret on the E string, I get a weird noise, a little like a star wars laser. I know this isn't normal, and it makes playing stuff like the main riff from Paradise City impossible without it sounding really awful. Is there a technique for reducing this effect?

Sorry for being a newbie on you guys...
