Newbie here, Hello from Manchester

Posted by Lee on 6th October 2018

Hi all, I am at intermediate level and I have been playing and learning on YouTube with Andy’s channel. I currently have a Tiger acoustic and a rare Gibson Epiphone Les Paul in cherry sunburst with tiger stripe running through. (which was a gift from my partner) I am in love with my Les Paul and I am using a Yamaha amp. I try to practice as much as I can and I’m currently learning new licks and riffs daily. Ever since I started learning with Andy on his YouTube channel I have been hooked ever since and would like to thank Andy for his brilliant tutorials.

Thanks Andy, I have recently completed your tutorial for Half the world away from your youtube channel and I want to say thanks for a great tutorial :) it is my first full song in my repertoire.

I am still struggling to replicate the sound you have on your Les Paul standard when you play rock and metal and not too sure what settings to use on my amp? I have a Yamaha GA-15. 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
