its better to cut than to boost
remember that guitars are made of mids
remember that a tone that sounds good in the center will sound drastically different in just about every way when double tracked and vice versa
its hard to polish a turd, so make sure the sounds you are using are the best possible early in the recording stage, dont expect post processing to fix a bad guitar tone
leave space for the bass and highs, dont make your guitars drown everything else out
every change you make in the mix affects everything else, eqing the guitars slightly will change the way the drums sound etcetc
and most importantly dont rely on numbers and figures, trust your ears before anything else (especially if you are using accurate monitoring equipment)
