Whenever I switch to an overdriven or distorted tone by stepping on a pedal, even if I have the volume cranked higher than my clean tone, I seem to disappear in the mix. It seems that I need to crank the volume to unpleasant levels just to be heard. Are there any secrets to soloing with an overdriven tone and being heard when playing live? I don't play high gain or metal, just a good edgy overdriven lead tone for blues and classic rock.
