Dealing with overloaded production

That depends somewhat on how the band or clients have defined my role going in. I get songs a lot with 4 or 5 guitar tracks ( different mics or cabs) all with varying phase issues and then I just mute the ones I don't like. If a band wants everything in I try to find a place for what is there to make it work but a big percentage of the time people want my production sense as well.Then I just take parts in or out or move things around to get the dynamic that I want to keep the song interesting and building. Sometimes that means creating some new parts as well or rearranging a song.
