Every time I hear a song there is a question that comes to mind… when recording a song, I guess that rythmic guitars and vocals are recording first and the guitar solos are recording as overdubs, so that means that when recording the rythmic parts, you have to plan how many seconds of “space” you have to leave to fill later with the guitar solos. How is that made, intuition? you plan just play this chords three, four times, then start singing, and hope that that “space” is enough for the guitar solos…
And, also, you need to have very clear what do you have to record lately as overdubs to leave more “space” if, for example, there is going to be also saxophone solos, or keyboards, fiddle etc etc, so, how much time does it takes to figure all that when recording the basic tracks (guitar, rithmic), and how is planned, you are trying and seeing how it goes, or it’s perfectly designed from the start?
