    Listen to the guitar sound on this site. http://www.myspace.com/bodog (The music starts automatically)

    I know it is a bass, drums and guitar. But is the guitar just playing single notes with the bass to form a power sound (like each playing a note of a power chord)? Or is the guitar playing power chords while the bass plays single root notes?

    Also what kind of settings on the bass and guitar would I use for this kind of sound?

    Power chords, root notes on bass, that's obvious........the distortion you are hearing (which i assume you think is the actual setting on the guitars, considering you can't tell what the chording is on the guitars) is from the severe compression used to make this video play back on dial up quickly.

    Get a guitar amp and find the tone you like that matches this sound. that's the only way to do it

    Thanks for the 2nd ear. For some reason it seemed to be very heavy pumping. Maybe that is from the compression that you mentioned. Btw. I went to some of the band sites that you recorded. Nice work...

    Does it skip after it has been fully downloaded? It might be that it is not downloading fast enough so you get your skips while it tries to catch up.

    Yeh Drop D tuning may be the ticket. Give it that lower crunch.
