    haha dude, i had the same problem when i started! (i'm 16) well for example, i record metal... I will record the drums first, get every drum track the way i want it.. EQ, Compression. etc... then I move to guitar... Most of my guitar tehniques are inspired by Joey Sturgis (tdwp, asking alexandria, attack attack).. You're gonna want three guitars panned hard left, right, and center, then center not being as loud as left and right. Left and right will both be the SAME guitar part, recorded TWO SEPERATE TIMES. you're gonna have to make sure it's playable.. you will get a HUGE sound if you do it right! and lead is in the middle!

    • thanks man big help

    I second most of what the other guy said here.  Doubling anything will almost always make it sound "fatter" because it basically adds the biggest baddest natural chorus sound.

    This can work on pretty much every track you record. (Don't overdo it though) Just have the person play the doubled part exactly like the first.  The natural tiny differences will make the sound huge.

    • thanks man also a big help

    Track out your instruments and then add effects this is what works for me and i mix daily. Visit www.curserap.com for a feel of what i mean.

    yes that is true what that guy says about doubling and tripling guitar parts, just remember if your playing metal or rock and stuff with distortion to cut the bass and distortion down cuz when you layer your guitars if there's alot of distortion it will sound muddy when it gets huge

    use stero widening and a limiter on your master track and maybe some tape simulation
