    So, last Christmas I gots me a fancy electrical guitar.

    Ok, enough shtick​

    It is a Tyger starter guitar, and before you start in with " Oh Em Gee that guitar is utter Sh@%#" and start making up letters.

    I need more help with the amp and Tone knob.

    Because well, I know it shouldn't be as complecated as I am making it, but I am completly lost!

    So guitar shredders, metalheads, acoustic jammers.

    Got any advice?

    What is the problem, exactly? You're being kind of vague.

    What do you want to know? The tone knob is used to boost or cut the high and low ends of the audio spectrum. If you're having difficulties hearing any differences in the sound when adjusting the tone knob, it could be because of the cheap pickups in your guitar. Some pickups have poor response no matter what frequency you tuned to.

    In short: Use the tone knob to make the audio sound more "dull" or "sharp". Adjust to your personal liking. Use decent pickups (there are cheap AND good ones out there!).

    Ok, and what does Low and High mean on the amp?

    I assume you're talking about Low/High inputs?

    Low input gives you clean sound without boost. (sometimes referred to as the "clean channel")
    High input gives you a little boost and slight distortion. (sometimes referred to as the "drive channel")

    If you wanna shred with starter gear heres what you have to do, push the channel/distortion button, turn the lows and highs and gain UP and turn the mids dooown. Now you know the secret! :rock
