the part starting at 2:20

How can I get a distortion sound that is smooth like that? I have a LP but a really bad amp so I usually plug my guitar into my computer and use guitarrig2. Any suggestions on effects/pedals and settings to get that type of sound? Thanks
Oh and i just registered here. seems like a pretty cool place

there's a lot of high end in there... try something like this... i'm not sure, didn't try it, but it's a rough estimate of just the settings, don't have anything else to suggest...

Treble- 7-9, maybe 10
Mids- 5-7
Bass- 4-6
Gain- 6-8
Guitar tone- 6-9

As far as effects and settings, I think alot overdrive with some high end as mentioned above will be good. For sustain and ringing I find that a chorus or delay really helps. Hearing that I think the chorus or delay effect will really help get that guitar sound you want. Good luck with it.

throw in a compressor/sustainer, that'll get you some smooth sustain, and liek that dude up there said too, try the big muff!! though it will really dirty up the tone,

mids, gain, maybe a compressor. neck pickup usually gives more of a sex sound than bridge but thats preference.

If the big muff is a bit too dirty, which I think is, the metal muff would work well for you. I saw a great soundclip/ test of it on youtube, I think it would work wonders for you.
