Get The Tone
Typically, most amplifiers would be set as above for a rock tone. It should be noted that some players, such as Yngwie Malmsteen, slightly palm mute everything when they play fast arpeggios, because it helps to produce a separation between the various notes - most especially when applying a barré roll movement. In other words, the picking hand is responsible for the note separation rather than the fretting hand. In order to apply this approach on all strings, this involves crooking the fourth finger of the picking hand around the volume control ( Yngwie uses a Fender Stratocaster). Try taking a look at Yngwie’s playing on YouTube in order to observe the characteristic shape and posture adopted by his picking hand: it might feel restrictive at first, but you’ll get used to it after a while - and it doesn’t stop Mr Malmsteen!.
