I spent the night yesterday experinenting with tone in preparation for next rehearsal and concluded that there's a(nother) gap in my education. I searched for the busiest backing tracks I could find and then tried to dial in a tone that would cut through the mix. I had some epiphanies along the way, one was discovering how differently I have to treat the SG from the strat. Now the problem is that when I do find a tone that lets me cut through the mix rather than just sit on top of it and drown it with volume, I don't lile it very mych. It usually sounds a bit thin. I don't know if I should stick a pedal in front and for even more mids or what? I hear lots of guitar tones in songs all over that seem to cut through fine while still coming across as rounded.
