Here's my situation: a friend and I both play acoustic guitar and sing. We've written a few original songs and are about to start recording them ourselves. I'm looking for any advice on getting a good separation between the two guitars in the mix without doing anything too drastic with EQ or plugins. As I see it my options are: A: Record each guitar in mono and pan them hard left and right B: Record each guitar in stereo and pan the L and R channel of each hard left and right C: Record each guitar in stereo and do some creative panning, i.e. panning the L channel of guitar one hard left and the R channel to the middle, and the R channel of guitar two hard right and the L channel to the middle, or some other combination. It helps that both guitars are playing different parts in each song (open/capo, picking/strumming etc) and that our guitars both sound completely different. Basically what I want to achieve is a nice, full, stereo sound and am wondering if there's any good tips from others who have done the same thing? Thanks!
