for some reason the low E string on my guitar sounds really muddy and takes over the whole sound, when i play the a string down to high e everything sounds fine. Anyone know what the problem could be?

It could be your EQ (listen to Tommy Walker)
Maybe old strings (string die, replace them)
Maybe you're on you're neck pickup and used to the bridge?

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

Does it only sound bad through your amp? What about when you strike all the strings unplugged?

How old are the strings and how often and for how long do you play?

A set up wouldn't hurt but it could end up being a unnecessary expense. If it isn't the EQ I'd guess at the strings.

Yeah new strings. My guitarist changes strings every 2 weeks. Idk how long it takes guitar strigns to die, but I change my basses about every 3-4 months. (They also cost about 5 times as much)
