Hey guys , i've been invited to jam with my friend's band , pretty Skinless/Deathcore sound , and i like the guys alot. they needed a lead guitar player and i offered to listento them jam and they seemed pretty excited. After hearing my good friends guitar tone and complaining about it to him , he just doesn't seem to hear it. hes using some weird solid state half stack , but that not even the worst part. Hes got his gain all the way up (by the way , when i say all the way up in this post at any time , that means as far as the knob will go) , highs all the way up , and lows up all the way WITH THE MIDS AT ZERO !. I'm looking for help on the best way to tell him he has Fail-Tone , and how to convince him to dial it in properly. I even tried his setup and couldn't even pinch harmonic on it because it was so bad. Barely able to tell one drop B note from the next. I couldn't even hear the bass player. I dialed in my settings to it and tried it to better tone success , but he was convinced he needed "that thump" you get from scooping the shit out of it. so should I try and talk it out with him , or just dial my guitar in properly when i try my gear out and cut right through him?
