acoustic guitar question

Recommended Posts

so i'm working on learning another joni tune - this one involves sliding your fingers down two frets and back up again really quickly.... i can't help but make a really loud [color:"yellow"] squeaky-running-your-fingers-along-the-strings sound whenever i play it ---- any pointesr on how to minimize the squeak and maximize the notes?

Two suggestions:

a) get coated strings. They're more expensive but they last longer, and maybe have a wee bit less squeak in 'em, and, a much better suggestion:

B) learn to love the squeak. It's a beautiful part of the innate sound of the guitar. Part of it's timbral signature, if you'd like.

A third and likely more correct suggestion, though it's certainly no quick fix:

learn to lift your fingers farther off the neck when you slide.
