Dirt Guitar Sound

Hi Dave,

I've read the guitar sound on Dirt was created by blending 3 amps together, one of which was a Scholz Rockman. I have tried to achieve similar results using the combination of 5150 (low), Bogner Ecstasy (mid), Scholz Rockman (high), but couldn't quite figure out how to adequately capture or combine the sounds. Would you be willing to describe how to capture and combine the sounds, particularly the Rockman high frequency part of the sound? Also, it sounds like there is also quite a bit of phase cancellation technique, and perhaps MS technique employed - can you shed some light on your use of these techniques as well? Finally, how much of the guitar sound would you attribute to the use of the Aphex aural exciter?

Thank you!
