Getting a Bigger Guitar Sound

How to get a bigger guitar sound by using 2 guitars a 57 and a ribbon mic. Layering electric guitar parts for more weight, depth, and dimension to the existing parts. I’m not adding parts to just add more tracks, it does have a purpose, adding depth and texture.

I’ll be micing and recording my Marshall JCM800 100 Watt Amp with a 4X12 Marshall Cabinet. Mics I’ll be using are the Shure SM57 and the Sterling ST170 Ribbon Mic.

Mixing Horns 2 – Keys and Guitar

In this video we discuss and go over mixing and blending the keyboards and guitar into the mix. With so many instruments and voice all competing for the same frequency range I’ll go over a couple tricks I use to keep instruments in their own space. As always, thank you for watching!

Getting the Guitar to Pop in the Mix

When working on a mix there are times where it can be a challenge to get things to pop in a mix. Sometimes adding the right compressor gets an instrument to pop, sometimes it’s the right eq or even as simple as getting the instrument balanced or the volumes right in the mix. But sometimes none of that works and here is one way to get the job done.


Using Delay to Give Life to a Guitar Track

Using delay on your recorded guitar is a great way to create space and finding that sweet spot in the mix. In this video, I use the H Delay from Waves to create this effect to take a mono signal and get that stereo effect.
