Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone,

Regarding the physics of a guitar sting-

I don’t know if this is possible! But does anyone have any idea how I could cause a string to be dampened,
and then gradually fade off?

- I want to replicate the finger plucking effect of a guitar string.

Dont violinists vibrate their fingers on the string to change the sound up near the neck.

I'm guessing you play guitar =P

I'm in my schools orchestra and cyrus is right about the thing with the vibrating fingers, they sort of wiggle their hands up and down to give their notes more color and less of that unwanted screechy tone but I'm not sure thats what you're looking for.

when you do this are you going to be doing it on your guitar or are you trying to replicate it with something else?

Yeah its a guitar string model I’m after, in particular i want to model the frictional causes somebody plucking a string with their fingers opposed to a 'clean' strike with a plectrum.
