: My bass makes a funny sound when i pluck the string. it's like a buzzing or
: rattling or something like that.. i think that it's from the string vibrating against the
: neck thing. how do i get rid of that? do i jsut move the things on the end of the
: bass?(that are attached to the strings [looks like they move the string up and down])?


It also might be that the truss rod in your neck needs adjusting. Your best bet is to take it to a qualified repair shop and have it set up.
You might also see if you get the buzzing if you play a little lighter and point your right hand fingers toward the bridge. If that helps, you have a choice of remedies - change your technique or get your bass set up for your current style of playing.

Good Luck,
