Here's Yngwie Malmsteen song

whatever sounds good to you man, there's no wrong way to do it. I typically use mono for most of my guitars, but if i'm using stereo effects or just cause i feel like it, i'm down to throw a track into stereo.

the beauty of the 11R is that you can record the dry track, you can record it in mono, and if you later want it in stereo, just reamp with the exact same sound. (or vice versa)
