I was tweaking tonight and found a strat tone I actually liked, straight out of the amp. It was basically SRV/ KWS "Leaving you" by using the OD channel, gain cranked and the EP Booster also cranked.
It was a nice howling, crying tone, but I was getting a lot of squawk from cord changes.

Is there an effect that mutes this or reduces this unwanted noise? Or is it just my sloppy approach that needs fixing?

try a noise gate, and also a hair band just below the nut



That is a cool trick...never heard of that one before. I like the idea of putting it behind the nut. Not so much in the last photo, wouldn't that act as a capo or kill all the open strings?

Work on technique first.
I can't argue with that. I am a very sloppy player. I'm fighting the strat, assuming due to it's longer scale length/tension and it's current set up which probably doesn't help. I play a LP and Casino (339) much cleaner without all that squawk

Get the guitar set up, and then find some licks you enjoy and practice them. Working on technique isn't fun, but the payoff is huge.
