I've looked at alot of those Authentic Guitar Tab books for albums and different songs, and I've noticed that in some songs the rhythm guitar is doubled up, and sometimes not. And I just don't understand a good rule of thumb of when to double track your rhythm guitars. Any ideas?

A lot of times, the rhythm track is doubled and it's not even noticeable. Depending on what your recording/playing situation is it's pretty much always a good idea to double-track; you can always take it out later.

Well there really isnt a section for "How to Record" so my best bet was to post it in the two most likely places.

You double track your rhythm guitars when you want them double tracked, there's no rules.

No rules. It's a matter of taste. Something you'll develop through experience.

if it sounds empty or thin, add another track. if not, leave it.

when you want a thick sound basically, so for most metal and rock. If there's a lot of instruments in a track I guess you would only single track it
