How does one get fuller sounding single notes? I hear many musicians who seem to have a great sound consistently whether they are hitting multiple notes or just a single fret -- even on their single notes I can fully hear their effects. For me, I only hear the effects/distortion on the lower strings and power chords.

How can I get my single notes on the high strings to sound less tinny and clean?

Well humbuckers work and start using the neck pickup gives you a rounder tone.

It's true that the neck pickup will give you a rounder, thicker sound but that's not all. It also has a lot to do with techniques, particularly vibrato. Another thing can be the equipment they use, ranging from their reverb to distortion to equalizers.

Usually well saturated gain will plump out the higher notes, and thinner more artificial distortion suffers at the high notes... so depending on what amp you have it could be that.

Have your guitar set up properly - action not too low, pickups not too close to strings.
Good technique - pick and fret cleanly and accurately
Good vibrato
EQ your amp properly
Don't have old strings.

one other thing, try messign with the EQ system, turn the treble up, that might work.

Thanks for all the answers guys. I am far from being even competent with my guitar and I know a lot of the guys who have the sound I'm looking for have far and away better skills and equipment.
