An acoustic guitar can really spice up a song in any genre. You of course want it to sound nice when mixed. Here are some basic EQ ideas to help you along.
- 150 – 300 Hz range: Use to beef-up the tone of the guitar. Do keep in mind, to much low end on an acoustic guitar can muddy up your song. So only boost this range if needed.
- 300 – 600 Hz range: Can be boosted if you have a thin sounding guitar. This range can do wonders and will help the guitar stand out in the mix.
- 600 – 800 Hz range: This is the guitar's mid-range sound. Decrease this range to give better tone and to give the guitar presence among other instruments.
- 1,000 – 3,500 Hz range: This range when boosted will make the guitar stand out in your mix. Raise these frequencies when working with a pluck-style guitar.
- 3,500 – 12,000 Hz range: This is the best frequency range for guitar. It will really make it stand out. A guitar will really sound crisp and beautiful when these frequencies are boosted.
