Hey guys, I came across this article on recording distorted guitars, and it's packed with some interesting ideas, so I'm posting a link here to share. I know that distorted guitars aren't likely to be used much by users of these forums, but you never know when that Yukele symphony will call for one of those crappy fuzz makers on it.

LOL! Slipperman is a piece of work, and a highly regarded engineer. He's got updates to this, along with audio files at his sub-forum of The Womb. Be aware that this forum tends to have a bit of a foul-mouthed, snarky vibe and isn't very newbie friendly. The proprietor of the Womb tends to react like a wedgied schoolboy to those who disagree with him. There is, however, tons of excellent information on recording and the music industry there.

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

For EQ and compression techniques in the mix, check out this article- though it talks more about acoustic guitar & vocals, but many of the premises remain the same.
