while Digging in , ... you can go more Across the string the hitting it at a downward angle ... coming down hard might hit the pups or the frets or both ... some folks like that .. !? or play a little closer to the bridge , it takes a harder hit to make that noise ...
you can EQ that noise out a little bit ... I think it's usually between 1k - 4k ish range ... !?
it takes some adjusting , of several things , when you change your style of playing ... hopefully you can find a happy medium for all things ... ! then it also takes a while to adapt and get used to ' whatever ' you change ...
