I'm starting to get a bit annoyed with these unwanted noises while strumming. Noise comes from E, A and D strings (they're called bass strings, I think?) while moving from chord to another. I can produce the noise easily by just sliding my fingers on the strings without fretting anything (it's that *SCHWEECH* -noise... you with me? smile.gif ) Otherwise those noises wouldn't bother me but they sound horrible when listening to my recordings...

How do you handle this issue? I noticed that if I don't lift my fingers from the fretboard when switching from chord to another, the noise pretty much disappears, but the overall sound and feel changes to something else as well. I've tried to lift my fingers a bit more from the fretboard so my fingers wouldn't slide on the strings, but this is quite difficult, since I seem to get that noise almost everytime I land my fingers on the frets.

Attached ImageOr could it be that I just happen to have the crappiest strings around? smile.gif I changed a new set today, but the noise just got worse.

Would any of you have any tips to overcome this problem?

PS. I can cheat with this and just turn the drive knob to 11, but It's not really that helpful when I look for a clean sound wink.gif

Everybody has this noise, over time you learn to dim it a little, and can be diminished when chaning chords fast and precise. You can also use some strings that have a more rounded wounds like eric johnson signature.

On some songs it's actually desirable...when Ritchie Blackmore does it, it has to be for sure laugh.gif

Yeah it sounds good when it's in the right place. I just seem to produce it right where I don't want it wink.gif
