It was never on 10, I always cut quite a bit of bottom end out so that the bass player gets plenty of space. I know how to sit in a mix ;) I just needed to tweak the mids, and what Exmachina said got me exactly what i wanted :) just a slight bit of extra edge on a tone I really liked already!
Hey guys, long post sorry!
I've been on something of a tone quest lately... since recently I play in a metal band as the only guitar player, so my sound has to be pretty in your face.
I use an Axe Fx 3 with matrix PA setup. I'm partial to the EVH5153 amps, blue channel, 50 and 100 watts.

I've experienced that as well... just quit the guitar for a while, crazy as it may seem... fuck around with other instruments, no matter if you can really play them. If the creative bug lives inside you it's bound to come out somehow ;)
Virtually every day, every time I play or practice it seems I suck and I'll never get better.. but something keeps me going, this need to improve, almost obsessive.. and honestly looking back I've improved sooo much, but it never seems that way in the day to day playing experience..
Unison seems pointless to me in most cases... but I guess sometimes there's no other way if the guitars play in drop F or whatever. Honestly, I don't like guitars going lower than A.. anything lower has never worked for me recording wise. I really really love it when the low end is handled by a...
