When people talk about recording they mention 8 track or 32 track etc. is that just like 1 track for singer , 1 for lead guitar, 1 for maybe sound affects? and theyre added together, layered? i dont get it!

I got a 4 track recorder which means I can record 4 instruments at the same time. What I do is record one track on rhytmn guitar, then playback the tape and add one more guitar, and so on.

That way I can make sound tracks with more than one guitar.

As far as studio goes, Azrael could help you one this. He knows more about mixing than I do.

Yes you can just keep adding tracks on then mix them
togather.
I use a computer software program called (CoolEditPro)
It will record up to 64 tracks.
This is great for putting Rythum tracks down and jamming
with your self or adding a drum track Bass track ect.
This is a great way to practice if you don't have a band.

yeah you can think of stereo as 2 tracks, and yeah
if youve got the tracks ya record each instrument
to its own track. used to be in studios they only
had 4 tracks so theyd record the stuff over the
other tracks and if it wasnt a perfect cut theyd
have to start over cuz ya couldnt erase the new
without erasin the old. but ya can combine
instruments on one track if ya wanna but i never
do seein as how ya can now get unlimited tracks
in yer programs. so i record each instrument to
its own track . its nice too because lots o times
the stuff ya record later sometimes makes ya wanna
edit/change stuff ya had recorded earlier.
