Couple of years Im self taught. But that was honestly pretty poor playing.

I never know what to play when I do demos so I end up doing random shit that doesn't sound good

And V yeah maybe I can give it another run a little later if you guys would like.

Also I played through my tele, which I now think might have not been the best idea. Buckers sound better through my camera.

Try playing riffs from different songs. Do you know any blues riffs? Those would go good with the tube overdrive. Can you play iron man, smoke on the water, or sweet child of mine? Those are good starter songs.

yeah Kutless is right, you know play something that sounds good without anything else like drums or bass, so that people who doesnt even know the riffs won't go like "erm.. :confuse: "

as for me... erm finally got done with my tracks

Sounds great man!

And when I use the tube screamer to boost an amp model, do I have to use a tube screamer or can I use another overdrive pedal? And also, do I have to boost all the amps with overdrive?(besides the clean amps)

And what amp model on the rp355 takes pedals the best?(I.e. The big muff, death metal, ds1, etc.) Because I found that some amps don't take them too well.

One more question, do I have to adjust the noise gate a certain way, or can I just slap it on without adjusting it? How does it work? Sorry for all the questions.

There are two things an OD can do. It can boost the signal and/or it can act as a distortion pedal. You don't have to use a Tubescreamer. Any OD can be combined with an amp. MOst of the time you are cascading two distortions. If both distortions are high gain then it may not work well or you may hardly hear a difference.

Basically no rules. Mix and match according to your preference. Since I haven't used the amp models much I can't comment on the best combinations.

And yes you should adjust the noise gate. But the default setting may work for you. It all depends on how you want the notes to decay.

Thanks And how do you adjust the noise gate correctly and what do the settings do?

Well threshold is probably the most important. It's the level at which the gates turns on and off. Then you have attack and release, which is the rate at which the volume kicks in and then fades out. I don't use a gate a lot because it messes with the feel of the tone. But you kind of need it when using gain (amps or stomps) in your chain.

Thanks. Yeah, I really need noise gate because there's alot of noise without it.

seems like your questions got answered, erm for the boost, it all depends if you like with or without it I myself like to lower the gain on the amp a bit from the point i like it and then boost it with an overdrive to the point i like it again, it tightens the things a bit plus I play live stompbox mode so then i have a nice lower gain sound as well which gives me kind ofa saturated clean sound when i roll off the volume on the guitar... not the best cleans but for live and for like parts in the song that don't really requier super clean stuff you know I'm already doing pedaldance thru my songs so wouldnt want to make it more complicated
