    My new band is playing songs with a fair amount of heavy, very distorted, palm-muting, etc. E.g., Alice in Chains level distortion.

    Can anyone point me to some good tutorials or online lessons for playing this kind of style? I've found some good tutorials on palm muting and I'm getting better at it, but I need some guidance on how to set up the amp and effects, and other playing techniques that might be useful.

    I bet Jim Bob at your local guitar store would be happy to show you.

    I asked him, but his noodling was so loud he didn't hear me. :)

    Heavy music is often not played with as much distortion as you might think.
