Power Chords setting


Recommended Posts



I'm relatively new to the guitar and I have a Spider IV 75 amp.  What I want to do is find a good tone for playing power chords on my electric.  I thought I would use the clean channel (red/green) and then manually increase the drive.  This does not seem to alter the sound that much, certainly not to the extent of the sounds I hear on you tube videos on the subject.  Most were recommending a clean setting with a bit of fuzz, but I can't seem to replicate it.


Any help greatly appreciated

I'd recommend you keep experimenting - try different manual settings, or work with an existing preset.  'Power chord' is just a term meaning doing the root-fifth-octave notes of a chord, doesn't define what kind of sound you are lookng for.  The guitar you use (and its pickups) also will affect the overall sound.
