Step 1: Tips and Tricks

There are some things you need to know before I tell you this stuff

1. Look at the yellow square on the left that plus means distortin boost you can enable this by holding the TAP button and turning the distortion past 12'0 clock.

2. Look at the yellow square on the right this amp has a noise gate in it all you have do to enable that is hold the TAP button and turn the echo and reverb knob past 12'0 clock.

3.and one more thing if I don't put any thing on the reverb and delay when there is a N on it that means that it's off as in no reverb or delay. and I will put an X if you don't do any thing with it.

The reason that there is no settings on this one is because this is just to so the symbols

Step 2: Acoustic / Folk Guitar

    Even for "beggeiners" it would help to have more words than "look at the pic". That is a bit of explanation as to what this does to the sound, what things sound like.
