When discussing guitar layering, a common method often suggested is panning guitars opposite each other, either hard-panned, or 50-50. You seldom hear about guitar parts stacked directly on top of each other to alter their character. I'm thinking of trying this out for my next session. Does anyone else use this method? I imagine the key is to make the parts as distinct as possible to avoid phase issues....but i'm thinking maybe phase could be utilised for all kinds of trippy chorus fx? Please share your tips, as well as any examples of where it's been used effectively in commercial mixes.
