    Why did the nut need changing? Did you get a pre-slotted nut or did you do it yourself? In either case, it sounds like it should be redone.

    It did the same thing with the original nut with an open string buzz.
    It eliminated the problem with the open string buzz but now there is there is this weird sound from it wish i could describe unless i touch the top of the string.

    it could be that the notch cut into the Nut at the D is to deep. have you tried putting a piece of paper under the D at the nut to see if it raises it up enough to eliminate the Buzz or sound
