    i was just listening to some Blink 182:D and on their latest songs Mark tends to have a needly sound..like a sharp sound..its very hard to describe. If you listen to some of their new stuff you can hear it. basically what im asking..how does he get this sound?

    EDIT:i put this under strings because i think it has something to do with the strings...if it doesnt...feel free to move it
    thanks
