Okay, love this song. I play it with a Digitech RP159 effects pedal, and i play on

your starting point, experiment. For people who dont have pedals, before i got mine, i
with the gain on 10, Bass, Middle and Treble all on 5, Drive on and volume set to your liking.

yeah i wrote that back when i had my effects pedal. it bypassed the amp's settings, so i generally just left it all on 5
