Just wondering, for those of you who like to play along with your favorite cds or play covers, how "authentic" can you get your sound to that of a particular song or artist? Or do you just try to ballpark it.
I just spent the last hour or so listening to 4 Metallica cds, all of which had very different tones, and some where quite convincing, almost to where I couldn't tell the difference between the cd and my guitar. But others, well, close but no cigar. Master of Puppets seems to have the same guitar tone throughout and is very aggressive. Had to go insane green w/ eq+boost and still wasn't scooped enough. There seems to be some mids in the amp that just can't quite get all the way out.
Forgive me if I sound a little too OCD, I was just wondering if any others were going through the same thing.
