I've just got myself a GT 10 and figured out how to tweak it. The sad part is, I dont really know how to build a tone. About the only tones I have experience building are psy rock tones. If anyone could explain how to get a good metal tone or a good blues tone, I'd be very greatful. And if anyone wants to know how to do a psy tone, I'll be glad to help.

To get an idea of the sort of tones I do have experience with, check out my profile:

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

Why not try using your EQ more than effects? Set everything to half way and cut or boost certain frequencies that need it.
