What is the best sweeping guitar setting for a person that plays metal.


What I mean is treble to gain and etc. (everything on my amp goes up to 10, BTW).. .just to be more specific.

What amp do you have? On my 5150, I usually keep the gain around 1 or 2 o' clock.

I'd say mids should be at least at 10 o' clock.

Well, proper technique is really the most important thing.

But gain can really help as well, however too much can adversely effect your tone.

I sweep pretty cleanly so I crank up the gain pretty much all the way. Sounds great. I just need to make it even cleaner and ohhhh man it's going to sound awesome.

Yeah. You'll notice with too much gain, you'll get a lot of background noise that drowns out the arpeggios (assuming that's what you're sweeping).

Id flip to the neck pickup first of all

As far as settings go just make sure you're tone is cutting through so it doesn't get lost.. Which can easily happen in a metal setting.

Ease off on the bass and make sure you have plenty of mids and treble to cut

get the technique right then just fiddle around with your amp until you get a sound that you think is good.

+1 on the switching to neck pickup bit.
as for ur amp, it should be balanced, without too much mids or highs.
