hello, can anyone give some advice on how to get a smooth transition between separate guitar tracks.

I've recorded a verse and a chorus but cant get them to sound like 1 continuous piece.

any help is much appreciated.

First make sure you're recording the guitar parts exactly the same. Same volume, same mic placement, etc. The just cross fade the tracks.
Recording the tracks back to back helps, so you can be sure it sounds exactly the same tone-wise. Also, don't start recording the next track right when the previous one stops. Give yourself a few bars to get the tempo. That way, there shouldn't be a tempo gap between the tracks. I'm not sure what kind of setup you are using for recording, but a decent program should make it fairly simple to transition smoothly.
My Setup: Schecter Hellraiser FR, Line 6 Pod XT Live, Line 6 Spider II, Crate Half-Stack
