"Goto 12:20 for his 'Big Secret' - Which is splitting and panning reverbs to add depth/size (make it sound huge) - it's a interesting trick!"
That is so cool I am definitely going to try this
What I to create a wide sound is
1. record the channel (mic or pickup)
2. duplicate the track
3. set first track to left, way left or say 9 o'clock on the dial
4. Set the second track way right or at 3 o'clock. This track you need to nudge slightly later. I am using Reaper so I click on the track element and press N to nudge, and start moving it 5ms at a time. (if you zoom in the start of the element you can see it shifting to the right in tiny steps) I have found a sweet spot of 15ms. In other words the right channel plays 15ms later than the left. It's quite magical, suddenly the stereo effect steps in
If I have two guitars I can set the one pair to way left and middle and the other to way right and middle. Imagine the center point between to two dials and that's where the guitar will be with a nice stereo sound.
