    Default Rattling sound

    Hi
    I recently started playing the guitar and have been noticing these strange rattling sounds on some of the strings when i strum them.
    I am a big newbie so i am not sure what it is or what i can do to fix it.
    Hope you can help

    Is it rattling or is it buzzing? If it is rattling, it could be the tuners or the bridge might be loose. If it is buzzing, then it could be the strings, the setup on the guitar which includes the string height.

    Have a guitar tech look at it. I had the same issue when I first picked up the guitar and when I took it in to have a tech take a look at it, they told me it was "player error", hahaha.....

    I guess it is all a part of being a beginner and the learning process.
