I don’t think the stereo spread on drums should be as wide as guitars so in comparison to them the drums appear relatively mono.
Of course I may be talking gibberish so wait for the experts to come along!
I'm something between a beginner and a pro when it comes to mixing. Possibly we are on the same level sorta :thumbup: Interesting thought about having one of the guitars panned opposite some of the drums. But perhaps i would use an envelope to change the panning of that guitar when the drums are silent.
