hey guys,

So ive got some pretty cool recording gear now and I wanna do things right. I know it isnt going to sound "mainstream quality" but I want to get as close as possible. Ive been told that for a guitar rythm track, you record two and pan both to separate sides. Is this true? How much do I pan it? (80%,90% etc) Are they the same volumes???

Any tips will be great. Please go as in-depth as possible.

Pan one to the extreme right and one to the extreme left, lead straight up the middle.

My feet back up on the bank,

i'll record one track, and put it about 80% left. then record the exact same thing again, pan it about 80% right. if there's any harmony tracks, i'll either use the right for the harmony, or record a third, and put it either dead in the center, or to the left or right about 5 or 10%.

i do the same thing for solos too, if they're pre-written and not improv'd.
gear?

NEVER pan all the way (80% is tops)

I'd go for 70%.

my guitarist does 75% each side, sounds great (better than 70% imo)

agreed. you want some of each mixing with the other. if one's going 100% left, and the other 100% right, there's no mix, and differences in the two recordings are super-noticeable.
