Hi, I'm Chay Alexander Wright, guitarist in Los Angeles, California, and today we're going to talk about how to keep an electric guitar string from buzzing. The way to do this is to place your fingers on the frets as close to the fret as possible for a clean tone. The further away from the fret you are, if you're in the middle of the fret or close to the fret before it that's where you start to get the buzz tone, so we want to stop that buzz from putting your fingers as close to the fret as possible and that will be clean. Also, the way your strings are set up on the instrument, if you have a buzz with open strings it's probably some adjustment that needs to happen in your bridge. So you want to raise the bridge up just enough to where that buzz stops and it's still, the strings are still low enough for you to get good, for you to get good clean tones all the way up the fret board. So one, you want to play the fret, play the string as close to the fret as you can and you also want to make sure that your bridge is not too low where the strings sit on so that it doesn't buzz openly. It's high enough to where the open string is clean but you can still get clean comfortable tones throughout the fret board. I'm Chay Alexander Wright, and that's how you stop the electric guitar string from buzzing.
