MAY: Is your guitar "buzzing" or has it become more difficult to play recently? If so, you likely need to have the guitar's neck adjusted. Yes, that can be done! The rapidly changing weather around here can affect the wood from which your guitar is made. Changes in the temperature and humidity can cause your guitar neck to move, either increasing the distance between the strings and fingerboard (making the guitar more difficult to play) or decreasing that distance enough to make the strings "buzz" on the frets. Both problems can be easily fixed if you bring your guitar to A-major Music for an adjustment; the typical cost of which is $10 or less.
