Hey guys, still a huge noob who knows very little about everything and anything to do with guitar. So my question is if I'm playing songs with chords such as wonderwall what settings should I have my amp on for the best sound. As in bass/middle/treble.

Thanks in advance.

There is no 'best' sound, it all depends on what gear you're using and what kind of sound you want to achieve.

Also, threads asking about settings aren't allowed. Do a search for the Ultimate Settings Thread and maybe ask there or have a look through it and see if it's of any help.

For open chord progressions (such as wonderwall) the gain and volume should be set pretty low. As for the EQ:

For humbuckers I would suggest something like:
Bass: 4
Mid: 5
Treble: 8

For single coils something like:
Bass:6
Mid:7
Treble:6

Of course every amp/guitar combination is different so these are just general and your results may vary.

As of now I can play Mostly chili peppers stuff, (californication/slow cheetah/parts of cant stop/dani california solo/ beginning of under the bridge), some easy greenday songs, wonderwall, parts of some Kiss songs, various other easy parts of other songs from various bands, and I a play around and experiment with some chords a bit. That is the extent of my playing this far.

As for my amp it is this http://bavasmusic.com.au/store/legacy-firebird-p-3151.html

And my guitar is a legacy emerald series.
