I’ve spent the last week tweaking guitar amp and cabiniet settings and combinations in order to get a better sounding guitar track in my rock recordings. Here is the result. I am looking for some feedback. Please let me know what you think.

sounds good man, the tone fits the style, you’re a killer guitar player!
Thank you Houseofsounds.
Now I just have to get my mastering under control on the rock songs. It seems easy to me to master other forms of music, but rock and metal are a different animal. But I recently updated this track with my first pass at mastering and I think it is working, especially if you listen to the songs that come next in my Reverb player. This one sounds insanely better than the rest as far as use of the sound spectrum. It has a fuller sound, and the instruments are discernable because I cut unnecessary frequencies from the mix thanks to a few simple rules from garethcoker. The main rule I used was his note about paying attention to the following frequencies; 40HZ, 200-400HZ, and 3KHZ. I also did a little cutting at frequencies above 10KHZ as well.
After fixing the frequencies by EQ-ing, I added a limiter, set on a very mild setting, which enabled me to gain a bit of volume on the overall mix, without completely squashing the sound.
ya i just saw his post on those tips I can’t wait to try them, looking forward to hearing more man, keep up with good work.
