    Ya know that little click ya get when ya are playin and ya right and left fingur are a little off from each other... Anyone know some exercises to get rid of that so i can get a clean clean clean note
     
  2. simple scales starting slow, getting gradually faster while keeping it clean and letting the notes really resonate.
     
  3. A metronome would help too. Hearing a beat to help you know when to play may help coordinate.
     
  4. I'm not 100% sure what you're talking about but if you mean you get a little click when your right hand attacks the string just make sure you're not pushing the string inward towards the fretboard when you strike it. You may want to check your action too and make sure it's not too low.

    but...but...Fieldy does it all the time :p
     
  6. that wouldn't be a "click" it would be the nasty little monster called fret rattle or fret buzz.
