I've recorded 11 new songs for an album I'm working on. I recorded the drums, bass, rhythm guitar and vocals live with a couple of friends who're very fine local musos and I think it's starting to come together quite nicely. I've now started adding the overdubs for additional guitar parts and I'm finding it difficult to decide on what guitar to use for some parts. Sometimes I think a strat will sound right but end up using my LP. Fortunately the Boss 1600CD that I'm using has 16 V tracks so I can do several takes before reaching a final decision. But it got me thinking - how do others decide what guitar to use for certain parts? I've read about the pro's who spend days trying different amp/guitar combinations. That's all fine and dandy when you're a full time muso but when time is limited to evenings and weekends it makes it more important to use your time wisely. So what do others do??
