    Hi Brennon,

    the purpose why guitarist record a "guitar left" track and additionally record a "guitar right" track after that, is that you get a huge and wide sounding guitar sound, if you pan one track hard to the left and the other one hard to the right. Even if both guitars play exactly the same it is a huge difference compared to only have one mono guitar in the center.

    You can easily try yourself in your mix. Mute one of the two guitars and put the other one into the center. Listen how it sounds. Then play both guitar tracks panned left and right and hear the difference. It's huge.

    By the way it does not work if the first recorded track is just copied in the DAW. The second track has to be recorded separately.

    Best regards,

    Stefan
