How To Sound Like Marty Friedman Megadeth (South Shields Guitar Lessons)

2003 Intreview Marty Friedman was asked how he got his tone

Would you share your EQ setting for your amplifier? What are the positions of the bass, mid, treble etc. These are what interest the young guitarists here and all over the world I guess.( just an approximate setting )
I have no idea! Tone comes strictly from the hands, so at whatever setting I may be set at, I sound pretty much the same. Even on other people's gear, I wind up sounding the same. I can tell you that I like to play loud because you get a lot of good sustain and tone that way.
