    Slipperman's Recording Distorted Guitars From Hell

    I finally got around to dumping the mp3's at the end of this onto my iPod, and I'm listening to them from work. Not only is the pages and pages of text that predicate it pretty damned phenominal, the audio is pretty great too (though he wanders a lot, although oftentimes his diversions seem more valuable than the actually topics).

    Basically, if you record heavy guitars, you should read this, even if you eventually end up disagreeing with him. Knowledge is power.

    See, I find it entertaining and informative. Great read.

    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    I found this to be absolutely priceless information a couple of years ago when you first posted it on, but you're right - now I really disagree with a lot of it That's not to say it's bad info in the slightest, but you just sorta find your own groove for production and start to see things for yourself. Still a great read though and I recommend it to anyone starting out

    I've read this before. I think there is an absolute wealth of good information, yes, but his writing style is positively painful. It's going to take many, many tries to make it all the way through this one...

    Slipperman is one of the head engineers at Big Blue Meanie studios in New Jersey. He depth of knowledge is regarding recording heavy music is amazing. He's been doing it for longer than most of us have been playing guitar. It is a tough read because he's an opinionated MF, but he knows his shit. I find that I agree with most of what he says on most subjects.

    Just keep in mind, every recording is different and there is no preset in any plugin that is going to make you sound like the next Bob Rock. I've recorded the same drumset with the same mics and same setup but with different drummers. The EQ, compression and levels were completely different for each band.

    That said, Slipperman does give you could starting point...
