I dont know how long ago this started, but after talking with another Uke'r they suggested that it is the fretboard that is a bit loose. I know that pressing down on the fretboard whilst plucking the string stops the buzz, but i was wondering if this is the case what am i best doing to resolve it ?

Most likely buzzing at the nut. Put you finger down on the A string above the nut and see if it stops. Often can be fixed by rewinding the string so the last wrap is at the bottom of the tuning peg.

Sometimes the nut will have a piece of grit or a sharp spur in the groove that can cause a buzz.

A lot of things can cause a buzz from a loose nut on a tuner all the through to an improperly seated saddle.

However, if it is really a problem with the fretboard, you'll need some heavy duty help.

I would post this in the Uke Tech Support.

I get a buzz when I play with an open G-string. Too much information?
