Hi, does anyone else think that fast strumming of full chords sounds realy harsh when played through an amp? How can this be overcome? Turning up the bass helps a bit.

I roll back on the volume knob just a bit to make sure it doesn't start to crackle.

Turn your gain down.

A lot.

I, personally, don't really. There are much more dissonant things you can do through gain than the standard chords...like minor/major 7 chords and minor second diads.

Iv'e worked it out, I just needed to hold my pick looser when playing, so that it can flop about a bit.

Thanks, I had that problem too. I surmised that I was attacking the strings too harshly, and you've confirmed it.

Oh and thanks to others on here too

You have two choice: work out your touch and get your strum become smooth but delicate or use your neck pickup and turning down treble using "TONE" knob.

yeah thanks, obviously an electric isn't realy meant for the aggressive sort of strumming you would serve up on an acoustic. Pete Townsend manages though...

I guess your gain is set to 10. turn it down to 5. Hit more of the lower strings and less of the higher, but also control open Es a bit
