A bit difficult to help only based on "twink", "twank", "treeeeeeeanw".

What guitar brand and model have you got?
Have you got new or old strings?
What amplifier have you got?
How do you connect them?
What settings do you key in on your amp?
Does your guitar sound better on another amp?
Does another guitar sound better with your amp.

I understood perfectly smile.gif You need some distortion or overdrive - your amp might do it, or you could get a pedal such as a Boss DS1.

Indeed. I saw some other guy ask about this some time ago, its probably just distortion/overdrive/fuz you're looking for! If it says "Gain" on your amp, that might be it. Or like Andrew said, get a distortion pedal smile.gif

P.S Uh Oh! Don't tune your guitar when you are drunk, Snap! This is basically the only time I snap strings, first time on a floyd rose tremolo!! laugh.gif
Tuning to DBGDGD I tuned the G the wrong way, oops. I am overdue for new strings anyway... I wanted to learn a Robert Johnson song sad.gif it will have to wait
