no, not that, when you play on the 13th the sound is dead, well it actually sounds the 14th fret instead, so the f on the 13th isnt there, you get a muffled f#, then the proper f# on the 14th

If you're hearing the 14th at the 13th doesn't that tell you either the 13th is too low or the 14th is too high?
