Hi Friends, I hope you’re marvellously well!
We’re back with another free tutorial by my good friend and producer extraordinaire Phil Allen: Phil shows you how to capture great electric guitar sounds and discusses several techniques to get different tones and timbres when recording electric guitars. Session guitarist Justin Norman walks you through his guitar pedal setup and explains how to dial in a low-noise – high-energy guitar sound and records various guitar parts:
- Clean guitars supporting and interacting with the lead vocal melody
- Chords to fill out the choruses and add texture &fullness
- Slide guitars for vibe and dimension
This tutorial is an excerpt of Phil Allen’s soon to be released course “Music Production”. If you have purchased Phil Allen’s course Mixing in the Box, in his new tutorial Phil will show you how he recorded and produced the song from scratch. So be on the lookout, it’s going to be good!
Please leave a bunch of questions and comments below: Which guitar amps and pedals are your favourites? Do you have a go-to guitar recording chain?
I’m looking forward to hearing your insights! Have a marvellous time recording and mixing,
