Since I'm a beginner I'm sure someone more experienced than me can answer this better, but I'll give it a try.
My guess is that this is because the neck got the wrong curve. There is a bolt through the neck that adjust the tension in the neck and compensates for the strings tensions. The strings actually bends the neck when you tune the strings. If you dont know how to do this, let a guitar technician do this for you. Find a good musicstore. So in short, let a music store set up your guitar right. Shouldn't be that expensive.

I'm pretty sure he was talking about a truss rod.......just take it to a good guitar store, ask for a set up, and you're set to go

Well whether its the neck relief or not, a good guitar tech will diagnose and fix it for you ... could be a combination of the action height AND the neck relief for instance. Point is, its hard to diagnose without experience, and none of us can actually see it to help you, so take it to someone who can check it out for you smile.gif

This may sound very simple but... This 'Vibrating Sound' you are experiencing could also be because that certain part of the string is rusted (dirt/oxidization), the that area on the finger board could be dirty or the frets are dirty. Change ur strings and clean up ur fretboard, this COULD fix ur problem if there is no neck curvature.

This happens to me very often
