hi all, im new to this forum shit, but im 16 years young and a proud owner of a tom morgan classic gibson les paul. my previous guitar only had 1 tone and 1 volume knob. so i was wondering what are some good settings for nice crisp leads and crunchy riffs. i usually set both tones to 10 and both volumes to 10 and its kinan fucked up. can any les paul owner let me in on some tips and secrets about this. anything at all will be helpful and greatly appreciatted.

Well that's just a matter of what you like. I do also almost always put both the volume and the tone buttom at ten and sometime turn the tone down to zero for some vary.
If it sounds crappy it's the amplifyers settings that sound shit - cause a Les Paul should'nt. Try not to put the gain at max it is not unusual that it will sound crappy that way, instead you put gain at maybe 4-5 and then raise the volume buttom so you recieve the sound you want.

And how is the other settings at your amp? The bass, middle and tremble? Try putting bass at 5-6, middle at 6-8 and tremble at 4-6 and go out from there. I hope you'll have a little bit help of this anyway.


Good luck /Christian Isenberg

Hehe no problem mate.

Oh so you play music such as blues, funk and rock. Good job man. When you really want to develope withing your guitar playing, start involving jazz in your music too ;) *thumb up*
Well no matter what you have to purchase yourself a tube amplifyer. There is nothing that sounds better; now you really can tell the string and the amp how you want the tone to sound and surely you will never ever regret your buy-in.
Myself use a "Peavey Valve King" 50W The left one of these:(http://namm.harmony-central.com/WNAMM05/Content/Peavey/PR/Valve-King-Series-lg.jpg)

What I love about this one is that you don't have to play so extremly loud to recieve the sharpness and feeling of the tubes, it is just to adjust the different knobs to get a good sound. But anyways I think that peavey is creating some really great amplifiers for example the beige Peavey Classic 30 or maybe another of your choises try some of them out on a local music store.

Well I have been playing for a little bit more than seven years now, and my best tip I can give you is to continue jamming(!), to play in a lot of different groups with different genres and different people. THat is when you really will develop withing you guitar playing. Don't get messed up only playing songs which you download on ultimate guitar and play at guitar pro, get that program and use it, but mainly you should practise phrasing and soloing, scales and playing together with bands.

But you say you don't want to pay "a goddamn teacher" which I think is a quite bad attitude, actually. I have played with a teacher for a long time and I don't regret it :p Theory owns btw.

So my tip is following: Play with different groups, play alot, learn scales, practice jamming and phrasing, watch, listen and learn from great guitarrists such as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Andy Timmons, Richie Kotzen etc., watch instruction tapes on the internet and practice with the guitar. Practice alot :) I hope I've been for some kind of help.

Good luck /Christian Isenberg
