mastering EQ techniques

I recently learned about the 'sweep' technique using a parametric EQ where I set the Q bandwidth as small as it gets (20), the gain up +6dB, and sweep the frequency until I hear 'singers' (frequencies that seem to ring no matter what the instruments are doing) and pull them down -2.4dB.

While it seems more desireable to do this on an individual instrument basis, I've had to do it to a couple 2-track recordings, both which had some similar problems that maybe ya'll can help me with.
