Personally, I do it with the knob on the guitar, since I don't have the money for a volume pedal (saving for wah and guitar).

But you can do either, it just more depends on the set up of the knobs. Some guitars have a knob very close to the bridge pickup that you can hook your pinky finger around to move very quickly. Others are not set up as conveniently, but they're do-able.

My Jackson Kelly only has one volume knob which is perfect for Speed or Thrash Metal. I dont use volume pedals because I like to keep my tone settings simple.

i dont like to lower the gain on my amp b/e the tone becomes horrible and it sounds bad, soi lower my volume knobs, only thing is tht wen i solo i must turn them up, its then hard to get them at a good volume after.

I usually just go with the knobs, but I'd really like to get a vol peddle b/c I have problems getting back to a good level after a solo when I'm playing w/ other people.

I use knobs due to that I only use a Jackson V and a Fender Stratocaster so its setup extremely close to my bridge pickup but I generally leave them at just full and contorl volume on my ampolification, tough volume perdals are best if you're attempting to recreate a violin sound
