Victory Pill's Jim Davies on layering guitars

Jim Davies is a master of layering guitars

Everyone knows that if you turn your back on a guitarist in the studio, he'll fill up your songs with 47 guitar parts that won't leave room for anything else on the track.

Layering guitars doesn't have to be a sludge-fest. With careful planning you can layer guitars so they compliment each other and, most importantly, the song.

In this video lesson, Victory Pill main man Jim Davies and live beats/synths man Pete Crossman show you how to layer guitar parts using different tones and pitch ranges to help the guitars sit together well.
