    I hate the E-string so much! I don’t know if it’s just because I suck at playing it but it sounds horrible to me. Every time I play any note on that string I’m like “oh god make it stop!”
    ╥﹏╥

    Hi there, glad you’re back on the forum! 🙂 Maybe it gets better if you use a different E-string? Did you try that? Or use less pressure to play on this string. If you use to little pressure it will whistle. But if you use just a little bit too much pressure on this string it will make the most horrible sounds…

    Can’t afford strings but I’ll try the pressure part 🙂

    If you only buy a new E-string that’s not very expensive. But trying some things with pressure should help! It’s been very helpful for me. 🙂 Maybe try playing long bow strokes on the E-string before you play your pieces. Just play open E-string many times. And take your time to listen to the sound and do it slowly so you can feel and hear when it sounds better and then try to do it always like that! 😉
