Outboard eqing seems a real skill?

I have a 3 band parametric eq with the dial knobs on it....and I am struggling with a couple of things:

1. I am stuck with my ears only, fair enough but it takes some getting used to. The graph helps a bit.

2. I have tried to follow recommendations that good eqing reduces db at certain frequencies, not raises them. somehow it seems lifeless when I do the opposite of what I normally do, even when adding overall gain to compensate. And anyway, I thought a good eq with nice transformers would mean I can get a nice sound by raising the gain?

3. When tracking I find myself creating the widest q possible in each of the 3 ranges to make it work a bit like a hi-fi eq. I am not comfortable fiddling with precise q ranges when tracking. Just find myself wanting to reduce or raise a bit of low, bit of mid or bit of high.

Any tips to get more used to this quickly?
