Does anyone know how to get my guitar to actually sound like the intro does in the song?

I have a standard epiphone LP and a marshall mg amp and I know how to play the song perfectly.

Despite this it still sounds awful when I run it through the amp.

Does anyone have any settings or recommendations for me?

I went to school stoned twice. the first time was a lot of fun, but the second time we had a guest speaker from the women's resource center come in, and talk about rape. I couldn't contain my laughter. Never again.

Get a new amp. MGs are terrible.

Are there any other members of Lynyrd Skynyrd who are dead?

Neck pickup, tone rolled off, gain halfway, contour fairly low (MG has that doesn't it...like a backwards mid control?), just enough bass for body and just enough treble to get it to cut through a bit.

And pray...lots. The MG isn't the best amp in the world and it's not really good for those singing, sustaining lead tones.
Actually called Mark!

No wonder. You're using an MG.

Use a REAL marshall.

And be slash. That top hat of his is magic.

He wears it. I just saw him on the rock and roll hall of fame and he had it on.
