    I'm been playing guitar from last 4 months and once in between my guitar geved a very veird sound at certain frets(7 and 13), I got it done once from my sir he said the bridge was not properly aligned(or is not levelled), again yesterday the same problem started.

    I am afraid :( please help me out is it to do something with the way you play guitar? Or something else.

    two weeks back I had got the strings changed to brand new Brass strings due to which It was giving very pleasant sound, but then suddenly yesterday this problem again started...

    Dude...I dont know how ya sir fixed it but usually this happens when the wood used in the guitar fredboard is of low quality..It has airvents or voids in between which open up after u use the guitar for a while.By opening up i mean not externally but when eva u press ya fingers at certain frets the voids underneath interfere with the expected sound.Usually a problem with low end accostic guitars

    its the problem wid ur bridge or ur fret board
    goto the shop where u bought it from and
    tell them to change the bridge(first show them the problem)

    BUT BEFORE THAT>>ask ur teacher what exactly is wrong and how it can be fixed.

    I have got a sugeestion to my query

    Hi this is regarding the problem I was facing with my guitar.

    Well well yesterday I had gone to a Gui workshop nearby, the person rectified the problem and said that the problem is due to the weather and coz of that the fret portion(Neck) is affected.

    He suggested to wrap my Gui's neck poriton with some Clothing while kepping it unused.

    hope this works, i mean it makes sense
