bass = low frequency
Middle/midrange = yep the middle pitched sounds
High = higher frequencies
Volume = yep you guessed it, how loud the amp is
Gain = The amount of distortion your amp makes (use this when playing rock/metal/punk)

the button is for selecting either the clean channel ort the gain channel.
The aux in is for hooking up mp3/music player to play with through the amp
2002 PRS CE22
2013 G&L ASAT Deluxe
2009 Epiphone G-400 (SH-4)
Marshall JCM2000 DSL100

Probably not. Not every new player understands these things.

Well if he isn't trolling he's still ****ing ******ed. Just play around with it.

Stop being a dick. He's obviously new to it all, not all new players have some kind of ear for it.

I'm sure you were fantastic when you started.

You weren't?

All kidding aside, just start turning the knobs until that amp makes the least annoying sound.

Well, I was. But I'm modest about it.

I remember when I first started I didn't have anybody to tell me what was what... I had no idea what distortion was called and kept asking how to make my guitar sound like "Metallica".
I also believed that since I wanted to play lead guitar and not bass guitar I needed the bass to be on 0 and the treble to be on 10.

When I first started, I thought the whammy bar would "disrupt" the electromagnetic field of the pups, when the arm was above it, to create gainy sustained sounds.

When I saw the yanking off it by someone, I was like wtf, that seems so rough for the guitar pulling the bridge like that.

Now I throw guitars.
