  Title : Developing While Recording  
         
  QUESTION:  
 
Hello, Marty! I have been recording acoustic guitar instrumental songs lately. Fortunately, I record the music in my bedroom with a couple of mics and a DAW. I say it is fortunate because I take hours to record, let's say, a three-minute lead guitar track. The track ends up being a collection of excellent takes - though not perfect. I develop my skill as a guitar player as I record this music. But, I believe I'm not advanced at playing guitar, despite playing for a decade and a half. Well, I wonder if you, a master guitarrist, stretrch your skills to the limit and develop yourself as you record the songs - as I and many other weekend warriors do - or if you come up with blazing solos and record them in few takes. Sorry for the long message. Thanks much, Marty! Regards, Tony
 
     
  MARTY'S ANSWER:  
 
Both, my friend! Usually I get what I need in 1 to 4 takes or so, but it`s not uncommon to get up to 50 or even 100 if I start obsessing on something. The end solo in "Time to say Goodbye" for example took so many takes I remember the staff laughing as we were doing it thinking I would never get one that I was satisfied with. Best of luck, end result is all that matters!
