One of our songs started out as a home recording with a really twangy guitar riff which our new guitarist seems to have trouble nailing during our rehearsals. I really have the feeling that with my treble knob maxed and the bridge pickup soloed I can get a twangier tone than he does when I play with a pick even though my strings aren't the newest. Last rehearsal, he played a Greco Les Paul copy through the mandatory Marshall tube amp with a custom-built 4'12 cab. My rig consists of a Status Energy strung with Rotosound Swing Bass strings into a Peavey Firebass with a 4'10 Warwick cab. I also have a bit of compression dialed in at all times. Do you guys have any suggestions as to how we could help him get more "twang"? The Ibanez RG he sometimes brings to rehearsals doesn't seem to sound a lot brighter, either. He also owns one of those sinfully expensive EHX "Memory Man" things for chorus and delay, which doesn't seem to help much either. I always thought a compressor might help, do you guys think the same? I suggested him to get one ages ago but he still won't listen to me. Does anyone have any reasonable suggestions other than "have him get a Telecaster" or "get a new guitar player"?
