That's one of the big challenges with any massaging of solo guitar. It's often the same issue with edits. You think you're splicing between two notes, but some other note that's ringing out in either the original and/or the edit makes the edit obvious. Sometimes these techniques work, sometimes they don't... You get away with a lot more in a band mix, but naked solo guitar, it's hard to hide all the evidence of manipulation of any kind.
