    Default Clarification

    In regards to my previous post concerning a tone that I was trying to closely mimic, I feel that I was misunderstood and thus labeled as a bad/inexperienced/ignorant player. I could play that solo on my Epiphone Dot on the clean channel of one of my amps and it sounds very good. The tapped sections are clear and the overall sound is very even. My problem occurred when I tried to construct a higher gain tone to sound close to Edward's performance. In the beginning, I incorrectly turned the proverbial gain knob to 10 and assumed that I was headed in the right direction. Wrong. The tapped sections sounded sloppy and unclear. So, I learned my lesson and eventually found a very close interpretation of the tone. I UNDERSTAND that no amount of gear will make anyone play better. I also understand that much of Edward's playing is contained in his strong hands and fingers. I just needed some pointers on how to construct a smooth, yet high-gain tone and I used my own experimentation to find something satisfying. Thank you..

    Dude, I wouldn't sweat what you may think others think of you as a guitar player. I'm sure you are a great player. But the truth is, there's always somebody out there that's "better" (unless you're Eddie ) and there is always someone who is worse.

    Rock on.
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    Relax Nowhere Man. You haven't been here long enough to get worked up. You're almost still a virgin in this forum.
    When you post, regardless of what you say, people are going to read their own meanings into things, kind of the way you did.
    They don't mean any harm, and were trying to help, so there's no point in getting your shorts in a knot over it.
    Even when we argue, they're a great bunch of guys, but believe it or not some of these bastards even have the nerve to disagree with me.
