And then we find it, only to get bored sick of the same chords being repeated over, and over, and over again. If you listen to some of the great songwriters, you’ll notice that the chorus progressions, if not all progressions in the song, are constantly being varied in both subtle and obvious ways.

- Tracking : Resources and Information Look here for articles on applied recording techniques and mic placement. It all starts here! Acoustic Guitar Tracking the acoustic guitar is a huge subject, because so much contributes to the final sound—player, instrument, room acoustics, mic choice and placement, effects, and more. Here are some timeless articles with solid advice to get you started on developing your own acoustic recording toolbox.

EQ: How & When To Use It Tips & Techniques Technique : Effects / Processing Equalisation is one of the most powerful tools in your sonic toolkit and can be your greatest enemy or your greatest ally in the battle for the perfect sound. DAVID MELLOR gives advice on how and when best to use it. The next time you make a recording, as an experiment set all the EQ controls of your mixing console to their centre positions and leave them there until you have finished the final mix. Don't be satisfied with anything less than perfection, and don't give yourself the excuse that you can't get a good sound because you were not able to use the EQ. EQ is a very powerful and effective item in your sonic toolkit, not unlike a circular saw in fact! It is always best to ensure that you get as good a sound as possible from the microphone, synth or sampler coming into the mixing console. "Graphics are great for EQing an entire mix so that you can shape the sound as a whole, even after you have processed the individual elements."

Mixing in Stereo: Adding Width and Depth to Your Recordings When it comes to discussing the fine art of mixing music, I tend to approach the subject with some trepidation. After all, compared to many of the topics I’ve written about, this one is rife with subjectivity — one person’s idea of a great sounding mix may be another’s sonic nightmare. And what works for one genre of music will be decidedly wrong for another. But all those variables aside, there are at least a few general theories, tips, and tricks that apply to most mix projects. In a good stereo mix, each instrument needs clarity, balance, separation, and its own space in the stereo field. The Concept At its most basic, mixing in stereo means mixing for the human brain and physiology. But in the real world, much of the process of creating a stereo mix is far from organic or natural. In actual practice, modern stereo mixing has less to do with replicating real world conditions than with creating a good sounding balance between the various musical elements in a recording.
