How to record Rock Guitar in the studio

Here's a super special video about how to record Rock Guitars and with Waterbear Music College in Brighton PLUS some awesome Guitar TONE TIPS!

It was an honour to have Bruce show us how to get some vintage tones from some awesome amps and studio techniques.

There are loads more recording tutorials and tone tips to come in the near future, including how to get that plexi tone through more affordable or low volume amps and even through amp sims. But what a way to get the ball rolling here with the help of Bruce and the team!

I highly recommend Waterbear college to anyone who is serious about their music career, get in touch with Bruce and see how they can help you! https://waterbear.org.uk/
