Set the guitar tone control switch to the middle position on a Gibson style guitar and crank up both volume controls to 10 with a third of the tone rolled in on the neck pickup This is a fast way to dial in the electric guitar tones that you want from the amplifier for that distinct rock sound.
Whether you want to play Metal, Rock, Blues or Jazz you start from the clean tone on the amp settings and then hunt around until you find the sound and tone that 'you' want. Then make a note of the tones you like the best.
Have fun and keep practicing.
