    I was wondering if there's a way to play the G and D strings to make it growl. Right now it feels a bit bright when I play it.

    Growl means many things to many people. Try to narrow it down a little.

    Playing closer to the bridge will usually bring oput more of the mid/upper mid frequencies that are a big part of growl. Digging in harder also makes a bass growl more. Beyond that I thinks its more what rig you are using.

    I'm new to this so maybe i made a mistake to what im asking. I wanted to ask how do you make the G and D string sound lower end.

    Cut your treble and boost your mids a little.

    And play closer to the neck.
