On the amp we use in this lesson, the first channel is a basic clean sound with the minimum equalization settings needed (low, high). This is the channel generally used by most players using solid state technology. These players usually use effects pedals and rack units to supplement this channel. This is effective as a setup when the shape of your tone is controlled outside the amp with pedals and rack units.
The second channel's big difference is the gain feature. This allows an overdrive or distortion (the most used effect) to be added to your tone with the click of a button or the click of a foot switch. This works really well when going to a solo or lead line. You can also use it as a second clean channel but push the volume a bit to get that extra push when you need it.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
