I'm a relatively new guitarist, in my first band at 40+ (late bloomer?!%*#...) My primary guitar is an American Std Strat. My only amp is the blues junior iii. My band plays some blues, some 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s rock... I play a sorta bluesy lead. I'm looking for some insight into how I can get the best out of the amp. I know that there is the "whatever sounds good to me" approach... but it's my first and only amp, so I don't have much scope regarding what is possible and what works. I'm hoping for some ideas about how you set this amp, and what you're looking for. This started when I was jamming with another friend and I commented that I sounded very twangy. He suggested turning down the mid. I'd never thought of adjusting the mid, or what that might achieve. So please don't be shy to tell me some basics that might seem obvious to you. How do you use the volume/master combo? What do you get out of the bass/treble/middle balance? What is the reverb good for? The fat switch I feel a bit better with. On for soloing, off for rhythm. Like I said, I'm starting at the basics here.
