bubba,
Don't worry about fret buzz. It doesn't mean that your bass is broken, just press harder on the fret and dont press on the actual metal fret, press on the wooden part. Also try using the other strings aposed 2 the E, these strings usually dont buzz all that much. they sound basically the same but just higher up. The A string is my favourite to use because it almost never buzzes and its not too high up.
hope this is helpful,
Mark


: 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...
