    I am new to these stuff, and theres not a single guitar tech near my place, or someone i can ask.

    I notice two things:
    1) If i play an open string with a bit of power - theres a fret buzz.
    2) as you go up on the fretboard from 1 to 22 The space between the string and the fret slightly goes up

    What should i do? what should i adjust? The bridge or the trussrod or both?

    Please explain clearly.

    Become acquainted with the basic laws of physics; you cannot have the same action at F20, that you have at F1.
