Tim Pierce’s Studio Guitar: Layering Guitar Parts
Hello all! First and foremost, I am honored to be part of Pure Guitar Magazine.
Here’s a video where I demonstrate layering parts on a song and then take a couple solos for fun. The guitars you’ll see are a Bill Nash Strat, Fano Firebird, PRS signature, Epiphone Casino, Tuttle Carvetop, and The Duesenberg Mike Campbell model, which made it on film for a nanosecond. I only used one pedal, an MXR CAE boost pedal – it’s like a micro amp.
One amp was used, a Divided By 13 RSA 23. Two microphones were on one Celestion vintage 30 speaker of the 412 cabinet. These mics were the industry standard Shure SM 57 and Royer 121. The 57 went through a vintage 1084 Neve mic preamp, and the Royer 121 through an AEA ribbon mic preamp. Both mic preamps blended into ProTools through a Chandler discrete line mixer. My delays came from an Eventide Eclipse processor. That’s it! See you next time.
