Honestly, better finger control is the best solution. That's also the solution if you're talking about the sort of whistle-squeak on the unwound strings.
Nah, it's not my playing style as other guitars don't squeak like this for me. Just doing a simply 3 /5 slide on the A string makes a pretty decent squeak, so there's nothing that could really be done to get around it as far as finger technique/control goes. I really need to get some better strings because these are just some cheapies that came with the guitar (Ibanez), so some of it has to do with the fact that they're new strings and it would probably go away once I broke them in more, but I don't want to take the time to do that since the strings aren't that great to begin with.
