Help with Preset Songs

Recommended Posts

I know from reading there are preset songs such as Day Tripper .. Hard Days Night .. songs from the 50's 60's etc.  However, I can not figure out how to get these songs to show up.  Would someone please walk me through on how to find these songs.  Thank You very much confused in Ohio.

Hi chicago43055

 

Yes, it is easy to misunderstand the reference to 'songs' in the manual - I did myself to start with. But there are no songs (ie pre-recorded music) in your Spider IV amplifier.
What is referred to as songs in the manual are only preset guitar sounds of famous songs.

Yes, correct - these are preset sound patches only, not actual music files. Use the 4-way selection switch and 'presets' knob next to it to cycle through the patches.

I have a question.  Any Ideas on dialing in on a Santana sound.  Thanks.  M.

Use a PRS guitar with long-sustaining humbuckers!  After that, it's a matter of finding a sound in the amp you like - not too much drive, some compression.

It depends on which amp you have. I don't think you said. If it's the 15 watt there are only 4 presets. You can search this site and the web. There is a several page line 6 document that came out a long time ago which shows how to dial in a bunch of classic/modern rock presets.
