thats because you are hitting the head with a larger tip.

hmmmm...well, since my guitars a piece of crap, when i play the fourth string between the seventh and tenth fret i get a buzz because the saddle screws keep unscrewing themselves.

Because i f*cking blow at playing chords, i mainly play my guitar with 2 or 3 strings at a time, by making up my own chords, a lot of times i don't use any real chords at all and just place my index finger on all my strings on a single fret, and move them up and down depending on the melody progression, because of this i make finger picking my main focus, not fretting, and i pick the strings individually instead of several strings at once... This of course has helped me prepare for bass.

Guiatar... Hmmm...... How about a guitar

I have used scissors on my guitar several times by keeping the 2 blades closed up and gliding it through the strings, giving it an old drone sound.

You have to get the tone right or it wont even come out as notes just feed back. It's really fun.
