Reducing Sliding Fret Noise
Many of us guitarist don't even realise the fret noise you get from a guitar, mostly on an acoustic.
This is the correct way to reduce it


This is a clever piece of engineering - Audio Cleaning Lab, seen it for 24.00 in the UK, not bad I think.

Yeah that's a great explanation. Actually in my teens I was trying to figure out how to *produce* the squeek as I liked the sound, but seemed to be unable to produce it. Using compression can really bring it a lot up in the mix, but by adjusting compressor settings it can be brought almost completely down too.

I picked up a trick some time back when trying to record Ac guitar in a studio. I was lucky the mix engineer was a guitar player.. He suggested I move my fingers just slightly to the fleshier parts of the fingers when sliding.  Stay off the callous part.  Work well, after some practice I started to get the technique down. I'm not perfect with it cause every so often I get string squeaks, but not nearly as loud or as bad.

I don't seem to suffer from it, I subconsciously learned to move my fingertips in a way that almost eliminates Fret noise. If I analyse how I play, my figures a fairly at right angles, finger pressure just enough, and most of the time my fingers almost lift up and along the fretboard. I suppose I play so many slow to medium tempo music, I seldom slide, unless I need the effect.

anymore I usually only get string squeaks when I'm pushing it  a bit.  I also lift my fingers up off the strings when doing a lot of chordal movement.
