Default Question about recording guitar tracks

My music is mainly guitar based. For my guitar parts, I double up each guitar part by copying the guitar track, panning the two tracks hard left and right, and applying a slight delay to the second guitar track to differentiate it. I then group the two tracks and apply effects to the group.

Instead of copying the guitar track to the second track should I be recording an entirely new guitar track? I’m wondering if it will be easier to mix and what is the preferred way to do this.
Thank you!

I believe the normal practice is to play it a second time. Or, play with different voicing a second time. So, maybe if first version is barre chords, the second version is open chords...or whatever a more creative guitarist can come up with

I'd record another track from scratch.

If you're playing the same part both times, just be sure that when mix down if you're not panning hard left and right, that you check the phase to ensure one isn't cancelling the other out in the centre
