If you're in a band covering Skater Boy, there's something seriously wrong. That's like dating a girl who makes you wear lipstick.

Dude. Look at it this way: there is not a single thing that you could EVER do to make that song sound any worse.
#19
You know, just set everything to 5 and use the bridge and the audience won't tell a difference. Since they probably haven't heard the song for years.

sigged

epic quote right there...
#22
i should feel priviliged at your quote!

the lead singer is a girl, and tbh right, i asked a simple question and got stupid jumped up answers from people. yano sorrry for being asked right at the very last minute to play a song. sorry for thinking i no lets pick an easy song so we have time to get it right.

all those people who have critisized me for asking how to make my performance the best it could be, shame on yous!

yeah okay, its not the best song in the world. but i bet you's have all learned a song and looked back on it and thought ****ing hell what was i thinking!

i pitty the lot of you who critisize me.
shows what type of guitarist you are.
not opening your mind to all types of music and artists out there
not willing to compromise with your band.

there is some people out there, who actually do like avril lavigne.

just shame on you all!
#23
Avril Lavigne's guitarists use PRS (which she fails to smash) and Mesa/Boogie Rectifiers.
Use a bridge-position humbucker, dial in some gain, keep the mids and treble fairly high. I'd say something like
Treble - 7
Middle - 6
Bass - 5

Frankly, if I was in a band and had to compromise to THAT extent, I'd play the song as more of a mockery than a serious cover, and I'd try to add my own style to it.

There are so many better songs to play with a girl singer. Try "Barracuda" by Heart.
#24
Bro sorry if I helped to hurt your feelings but it was just too easy to mock you. If I didnt i'd have to live with that the rest of my life

Oh and being sigged with THAT quote is a mark of shame, a scarlett letter here at UG.
Why you reading this?

This was all fun and games until you asked him to put on white panties.

Then it just got awkward.

that'd probably do for the whole song

Its not about the Radio its about talent, the front man has a bigger vocal range than Micheal Jackson and he can sing from heavey metal to high pitched ...No.12 on the top 20 under rated guitarists of ALL TIME...etc

Whoever reported this and linked to the settings thread, there isnt an Avril setting in there.

Treble - 7
Mids -5
bass- 4

Something like that, im going to guess. Light crunch gain wise.
