Why do the strings make that noise??
From the sound of it I'd say you're probably doing a weird pull-off thing with your left hand, but it's difficult to know without being able to see. Video would be more helpful.
Unless youre fretting your notes wrong it Sounds like string/fret buzz to me - ever had it adjusted? Take it to your local music store that works on guitars, it's an easy and cheap fix.
Is it only 1 or 2 strings? You could also try slipping some little folded pieces of paper under those strings up by the nut, too - but I'd have the dude at your shop set it up/adjust it for you. Basically your strings are a hair too close to your neck fir whatever reason - warped neck, old nut, bad setup, etc. Its an easy fix usually.
Yeah, there's a significant amount of buzz going on, but I assumed the question was about the plucking noise at the end of each note.
Ace, if you could maybe be more specific. Which noise are you talking about?
the buzzing noise all the strings buzz at some point on the fret rendering it unplayable.
Ah, ok. Then I agree with DethPike. Fret buzzing is usually a result of
1) Inexperience/hand strength
3) Inexpensive guitar
Try pressing down harder on each fret to see if that makes a difference. Also, as DethPike suggested, take your guitar to a pro shop and have them do a proper setup on it.
Sounds like a fret buzz due to warped neck. You might be able to have a music shop file a fret or two down and get rid of it, but for future reference, if you're going to store a guitar for a long period of time, loosen the strings or take them off.
Yup, fret buzz. You aren't making contact in the right spots and/or contact in the wrong spots.
