Comments

Having to work alone has its drawbacks, but that's what motivates many of us to have home studios in the first place and it really forces you to learn everything you can about the entire recording process. I hope that when I finally have a library to draw from,that it might be said that it was hard to tell that the driver for all harmony/melody tracks was a guitar.
