Sorry, too good not to post.
But, for my real question-
What can I do to make my Epi LP Custom and Line6 Spider III 75watt amp sound more blueslike other than upgrading? I don't want to physically change anything, but what little adjustments can I make to make it sound better?
Rap is music too. It is just another evolution of the medium. Don't be a douche and say it isn't.

find a setting with less gain, and a more overdrive-like tone. and dial in some eq with more mids and less treble.

then after a while get rid of the spider

Dear Stoner Stone,
I have found in reading this post that you are lacking the intelligence of a normal person.
you need serious help, possibly involving a screwdriver, and a large piece of wood.
please, be deceased now.
thank you

well try Claptons "woman tone" where you turn your volume all the way up and the tone all the way down on the neck pickup.

And I dont know if you tryed it but learn the BLUES scale.

Good luck

I can play blues well, It's just the tech part I have trouble with.

More overdrive? Wow, I thought less would be better. Man, I need to learn more about my amp.

Just turn down the gain a little bit.

I think by "more overdrive" he meant leaning more towards an overdrive-type sound, as opposed to distortion. On your amp, I guess that would be in the Twang or Blues settings.

Cool video Hernan_lp.

heres how, put the guitar on both pickups with the volume on the neck pickup at about 4 and the bridge at 10, and the tone on the neck at 10 and the bridge at maybe.. hmm 5
and then chuck out the spider and steal ur grandmas purse and get a good amp

I think I still have the 30 day period. What amp should I get for 300$ that can do blues, classic rock, crunch, and metal?

I have a spider (price was right, got it for like 40 percent of retail price).
But anyways, it's pretty hard to get a good blues tone with the amp alone. You may want to invest in a pedal that would give you that tone. Boss will probably have something that would work for you. And yes, les pauls can give a blues tone (Watch the crossroads DVD, several players there play Les Pauls).

When I want to get a bluesy tone I play over the rhytm setting with its volume almost completely turned down and the other one all the way up, and the 2 tone knobs on 5 or 6 or something.

Boss makes the Blues Driver, which is harsh and trebly without mods. I didn't like it.

Trade it for a Vox Valvetronix

Actually Johnny Winter has no mids, but his settings are as follows:
Bass: 0
Mids: 0
Presence: 0
Treble: 10

That's how he gets his "spike in the ear" tone.
