(edit) i know its possible because i don't have a line 6 or MG


Uhm... no. All amps sound differently, it does depend on what gear you have. You might be able to get close depending on what gear you have. But you'll never get it 100% accurate.

well i know it would not be easy but what kind of effects does he use for the song
like does he have some sort of overdrive or fuzz or mabey a booster?

What do you have? John uses strats through fender and marshall amps, with about 20 pedals.


maybe not 20.
i heard on the californication tour he used only 5.

ONLY 5, you say? A lot of guitarists get away with less tahn that on their pedalboard, nevermind use that many in one song.

You can hardly hear them anyway. It's all pretty much clean.

I know 4 pedals he has: Boss DS-2, Big Muff Pi (or at least a muff don't know which one), whammy (barely used) and a yamaha wah, that's all i know. He only uses strats and those through a marshall or if it's a completely clean song sometimes a fender twin reverb
Gear:
Fender Jazzmaster
Boss DS-2
Digitech RP150 (with Line6 EX-1 Exp pedal)
Orange Crush 30R

he only used the whammy for a while and that was quite recently, and to my knowledge he doesn't use a yamaha wah. Show me your Soul sounds like it was recorded around mothers milk era which was about 1990 so he would have had a very basic set-up, the only pedals i know he definatly used back then are wh10 and boss ce1, i think it was a jtm45 amp he was using then as well

are you serious? Dude no offense, but you need a new amp. And the Metal FAB is waayyyy too thin sounding. and a new guitar. A better amp and guitar will get you closer to that sound
