3 ways to get a "FAT" metal guitar sound.

Hello guys!

It's been a while since the last post. I have been really busy in the studio. So i thought i could talk about some of the problems and solutions i have gone through the last two weeks.

The band i have recorded with is a band called "Bermuda". They play, or should i say we play (i'm only a stand-in guitarist), melodic death metal, and which of course needs a FAT rythm guitar sound. Problems often occures when recording the guitars because of different reasons. So here comes some tips from the coach :)  This is for you who dub the rythm guitars at least two times, which i think most of you do?

1. Try to use different guitars when recording. If you only use one guitar, it can sound pretty weird because that your two(or more) rythm guitars sounds to equal.

2. Also try using two amps, if you have two great amps of course! This is because of the same reason as above.

3. Be sure that you tune in the same way all the time. Believe it or not, but there are at least two ways of tuning the guitar. You can tune while you hitting the string as hard as you doing while playing the riffs in the song, or you can tune the guitar when the string has rung for a little while. You will probably have to swap between theese two ways of tuning depending on what kind of things you are playing. So in other words.....
Tuning sucks :( haha!

The first time this problem accured for me was when recording guitar with my other band Inferior, and i couldn't understand why it sounded out of tune, but in the end I understod that it was the two ways of tuning problem.
