    I fret the 8th fret on the A string fret buzz and the buzz is coming from up the neck because I can put my finger on the 7th fret and deaden or mute it and the buzz goes away does my neck need more relief?help me out please
     
  2. It's called back buzz is something like that. Tray to add some relief if the neck is back bowed. If the buzz doesn't disappear maybe the nut groove on the A strong worn out.

    While you're at it, check your fret heights with a straight edge.
