Topic: Doing this new thing.....

I'm a perfectionist and have avoided recording anything lately because I'm super self critical. To fix this I've started to record (and post) my first takes of songs, knowing that they aren't going to be perfect. So once I've learned them, I hit record and see what happens. Hence several finger placement errors. I digress....

Here are my first two attempts:

Re: Doing this new thing.....

Sounded good to me BGD.  I do the same most of the time. I do a lot of takes, but I am more lenient on myself than you.  I finally take the best of several recordings and upload that one. If I didn't do that, I would never post a song.

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.
