Im recording a basic guitar adn bass track with other occasional sounds,
now, heres the theory we've all heard before -
"Dont tweak the guitar by itself, make sure you tweak it in the mix, because while it may sound great solo'd, it most likely will sound like crap in the mix, always do your EQing with it in the mix"
I understant that and I know why that is true, BUT...........
Lets say I start out with the guitar track first like normal and plan on adding bass afterwards,
now, when im recoriding the very first guitar track, how do I tweak it? Do I select the perfect tone so its sounds nice and full?
Isnt that like saying it doesnt matter though cuz when I add bass and other instruments that it'll prolly sound like crap in teh mix?
So my question is.......
when tweaking that guitar sound, is there a certain idea behind it, like maybe getting a certain tone that tends to work with bass adn is easily tweakible in the mix without doing to much EQing?
