I've been playing a long time, but just got my first Strat. It's a very different beast from the LP type guitars I've always played. I can't seem to get a good smooth sustainy lead sound or a good hard rock rhythm sound. What do you experienced strat players do to get the best sounds? Do you typically take leads on the neck, middle or bridge? The bridge pickup sounds pretty harsh. Do you usually roll off the tone? Any tips would be helpful.
