thats normal buddy, with the force of your hammer on, open strings are vibrating and this is causing that hum, so this is normal. You can stop that by muting your upper open strings with your palm of your right hand, and mute your E string with inside of your finger that you are pushing 8th fret by just touching it a little. Thats all you have to do biggrin.gif

Hope this was helpful!

Cheers biggrin.gif

Might even be a reasonance issue. Certain pitches and notes vibrate in such a way that they can make other open strings resonate.

This is how sympathetic strings work on a 12 string for example.

Quite a point you mentioned there buddy! yeah hammering on 10th fret in B gives you a A which will resonate directly with open A string and two open E's because this is the 2nd harmonic of A note smile.gif

It is your technique. You should be muting all the unused strings. Otherwise you'll sound horrible when you play loud and with lots of gain.
