By Stewart B Johnston
Recording electric guitar is very hard to be done if you do not know how to do it properly. It is different from the recording technique in the past. Now you do not need to do the recording by putting the microphone in front of the amplifier. You do not need to push the record button anymore. Since, it is a lot more convenient and easy to do guitar recording in recent days.

The sound of guitar varies on the instrument, amplifier, player, effect, and also the techniques in recording. If you are playing the guitar together you can do the tricks to make any kind of guitar recording result. Experimentation can be good in order to get the best sound that can suit to the duo guitars.
Before recording, make sure that your guitar is in great condition. Use the new strings which are fitted properly. As usual, you have to check the sound of your guitar so you will be able to fit the string and the amplifier. Check the tuning and intonation so you will be able to fix your guitar sound properly. Carefully check the tuning if you have opportunity because the guitar tune tends to drift if you are on a warm studio. You also need to leave your guitar connected to the tuner.
Commonly, guitar players rely on the guitar effects to create the feeling of playing guitar in live performance. The effects are numerous and can be added until the last minute of sound mixing. You might also replace the guitar effect if you think that the effect is ruining the song. You might also want to add more effect to replace that effect so your sound will be livelier.
Cables are also important part in studio recording. You have to make sure that the cables that you are using are the high quality cables. Cables can make huge difference to your guitar tone. The cables do not need to be gold plate. You just have to make sure that the cables that you are using are good quality cables that can make sure your guitar able to generate the best sound.
Do not add to much distortion or else your song will not sound good. The song will sound like messed-up song. One thing to notice here is not to overdo the song. Just make sure that it fits your preference and not too much. Get the balance of your song so you will be able to get good recording and can perform it greatly in live performance.
If you are intending to get high quality sound recording you can purchase digital multitrack recorder. There is also digital 4 track recorder model that is available in the marketplace. It is a good recorder that you can consider.
