Of recording, playing, miking, amp settings, etc.

For me, it's all about stereo and chorus/flange that's barely noticeable.

What about you guys?
Check out my music, if you please.

Turn the bass way up and everything else way down.

The way it should be.

I like to get powerful distortion and still have the ability to play some dirty cleans, and I always make it where I can lighten up on the distortion if I want to. I play metal stuff and come from a blues rock background, so I like to fuze the two

a solid clean sound with a little distortion and reverb thrown in. Mic the entire room to get the ambience and natural reverb, and I'm set.

Bare bones.

I plug streight into my amp, 6 on gain, 2 on mids, bass around 3.5, and use my volume knob to control my tone. Works out great, I can play everything on the spectrum. Got a Sm57 on a mic boom, and I play whatever I'm feeling. Usually hard rock/metal, sometimes funk, sometimes blues, whatever. My setup gives me a great range

like reddeath959 i also come from a more classic/bluesy/rock background. my dad listens pink floyd, led zeppelin, BB king, cream etc...and my mom listens spanish guitar and stuff from mexico.

and i listen that as well but i also listen metal, death metal and whatnot. so i like doing bluesy/melodic solos. i love using lots of gain and dirty cleans but also im a huge fan of acoustic. i despise lots of mids and bass, i love lots of treble with small amounts of bass and mids.

Mostly clean tones with a slight overdrive when needed and a nice reverb.

Heavily effected but absolutely nothing that I have to add using a computer;
Everything I do is done solely with a guitar and whatever else I can pic up with a mic.

When it comes to playing guitar, I have a unique style all my own and so do you.
That is the beauty of the guitar.

As far as settings, I love experimenting with sound!

I quess my favorite is a heavy/distorted sound with lots of feedback!!!

Scoop the mids, a little bit of reverb and multidelay.

I only play industrial on guitar, so it's just adding to the texture, not playing pretty chords.

Guitar -> Wah (seldom used) -> Delay -> Noise gate -> Amp

That's not really the order that they are in, the noise gate and sometimes the Delay are in the effects chain. My usual settings are as high gain as possible, whilst still retaining clarity and remaining articulate, HUGE mids, followed by large amounts of bass, treble around 6-ish (at most). I don't like shrill trebly tones. The delay is mainly so solos, to add sustain.

A nice chunky tone, recorded loud to get a good harmonic saturation, with perhaps some reverb or short, subtle delay added from the 'board, depending on the sound I want.

Well, I've never recorded anything, but that's what I'd do.

I like my tone with plenty of mid-range, but lots of gain. Sort of an over-gained rock tone, rather than a metal tone.
