I've always been wondering how you make those videos with many guitars so accurate. It looks like it takes a lot of time to make, unless you have an app to make it. Can you please suggest a similar app (doesn't have to be as good as long as the other guitar can be heard) just in case that I'll record a video of some of the songs that have many guitars? For example: Everybody Wants To Rule The World.

Thanks!

Because of GuitarTricks, I got to the level that I could play Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles in just eleven months! The instructors here are so good at teaching guitar! - Mikael_Z_Guitarist_123

It's essentially multitrack video recoding & editing. You record all the guitar parts one at a time separately. Then you import all the footage into software designed to handle multiple video/audio streams. It's usually called the Picture In Picture effect.

There are quite a few software programs capable of video editing. I use Adobe Premiere. I don't know about any phone apps that do this. Here's an example I found on YouTube describing the process.

Hope that helps!

I use software called Edius. It is user friendly software. I cannot do "picture in picture", but I can overlay images, what also is fun to do.

An example is this video (vocals done by a friend of mine, and all guitars by me, recorded over a backing track) :

or also this one (lead guitar by me) :
