I can play some barre chords and some ska, but my guitar doesn't sound right. Are there specific amp setting and guitar settings for the rhythmic clicks or do i need to use a certain pedel for the sound they get. I'm talking about the Less Than Jake and Sublime sounds. Any help on this matter would be appreciated!!!

It's all in the muted downstroke.

Try muting with your picking hand instead of your fretting hand.
lots of treble
