Yeah, that's a whole other world. When you have that kind of budget you can pull that shit. I've talked to some engineers who have been the A2 on some big name records and the stories are both hilarious and disturbing, but mostly hilarious.

Getting back on the main target. I spent a little while looking at Matt's style yesterday and even after watching him on hundreds of videos and seeing him live from a few feet away, I'm still amazed at how cleanly he plays for how aggressively he picks. I've spent years dialing my right hand technique back because I was breaking two strings at a time and he's up there flaying at his guitar like it kissed his girl without permission and he still nails his parts. I guess that it goes without saying that he's a singular talent and what works for Matt probably won't work for anyone else.

have you seen my guitarist? He has a fairly similar technique (hitting strings hard, clean playing) but I would go out on a limb and say he's better than Bellamy. Probably not the best demonstration but... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCZmqRDu1e4

The studio is a ruthless bitch that will tear your soul apart if you are unprepared for it.

As a producer, you should be looking for solutions to a problem. It is brilliant when everyone in the studio has their shit together, but if you can't work with people who have no idea what they are doing, you're in the wrong job.

I realize it is odd to mention Dave Matthews on a Muse board, but he is incredible at the technique the OP is describing. He also does it in MUCH more complicated ways. It gives an incredibly percussive sound to single notes. See the DMB songs Warehouse or Rhyme and Reason for a good example. It's definitely just something you need to practice.

Actually here's a guy doing a demo of warehouse and demonstrates it fairly well.



and a link to Dave playing rhyme and reason

Me gusta. Those vocals remind me of Amplifier


Also, what guitar is your guitarist using?

No offense but you might want to read what you just wrote to see how ridiculous it sounds.
