Yep. You won't notice those tones until you record it, but the part of the strings between the nut and the winding pegs "sing"....for lack of a better term. Play your guitar and ask someone to gently press their finger against the strings above the nut and the tones go away. Clearly you can't record like this, but you can find a "scrunchie"....it's a pony tail holder. Cloth rubber band? You get me. Wrap it around the headstock of the guitar enough to dampen the strings, but not so much you pull it out of tune. That should take care of it. This is for acoustic guitars. I presumed that what you were talking about.
