Yes, all these tracks are recorded separately, as tight as possible. You can use different guitars, different amps, different cabs, so you get more diverse sound. Just depends what you need to record.

Wait, so this is what I've been doing lately: Record a left track separately. Then record a right track separately. I assume this is double tracking. For this project I did this as well, times two. So there are 4 guitars. I assume this is called quad tracking. I should probably stick to just 2 guitars for now since I'm not very tight yet. It's really hard for me and I end up recording over and over and over, and it's still not tight enough. They were all with different settings btw.

So my question to y'all is: will L and R tracking be enough? Cuz I don't like just recording a stereo track (even if it's I have a A and B tone with different amps) I sounds better with the small variations from the L and R. If pros record quad tracking, it's good and tight, cuz I would never know.



Double tracking is two guitars panned 100% L/R and quad would be something like two 100% L/R and two 60-80% L/R but there volumes something like 3-5db lower than the two first ones.

The two tracks panned 60 to 80 are lower in volume and really just fill in the space to create the "wall". Not everyone quad tracks though, double tracking can have the same effect if you produce it right, I just find quad produces richer harmonies and thicker hits.

Yes - depends on how your daw's panning law is set. In some daws you can choose the curve that you want to use. In a stereo field the sides are often lower in apparent volume than the centre channel anyway.
