have you tried the ultimate settings thread? if not, keep the mids around 4-5, bass and treble higher, with high gain. Depends a lot on your amp too.

the solo is a bit tricky, but the main riff is pretty cool. hammer ons and pull offs are a good thing to learn early on.

hi im wondering what syns tunings are on his amp when he plays

It doesn't matter unless you have exactly the same amp so stop worrying about it.

You also need his guitar and his fingers to sound like him.

Seems like a lose/lose situation.

Honestly though, play around with the EQ and when you find something you like, write down what you have. Do it 3 more times then single out which one sounds best to you, and which one sounds like him.

I moved from bass to guitar.

Yes, hitting the notes is easier.

But listen to what you played.

Chances are it sounds like ass.

To the TS. You can really learn anything at any point, just play it at a speed that allows clean playing and proper technique and work the speed up.
#23
This was one of the earlier riffs i learned, its pretty good. Also look into learning bat country too, its has some good chord work on the clean parts and its fun with the distorted parts.

The solo on this isn't terrible, or atleast some parts (excluding sweeps and fast harmonies)

His album sound is also heavily reliant on good production as well.

He also uses a bogner uberschall amp head, which is also a big factor in the tone he's getting. But i wouldn't get it unless you wanna waste away 3 grand for a tone like his.
