    Drew shut up you can play a un-tuned fisher price guitar through an aquarium and it sounds glorious.

    Randy yeah I had a bit of a disconnect with what i enjoyed previously versus what I like now and had to go through a process of trial and error and struggle to get somewhere that works for me. I didn't want to take the route of just throwing cash at stuff until it worked. I knew the stuff I had would work but it would take a bit more effort on my part for it to pay off. I mean you go to youtube and you see guys demo stuff and the stuff they put out is perfectly mixed and mastered and then here's me plonking along in my closet of lolitude just trying to get anything sounding decent at all.

    Its easy to get up an a trap of telling yourself everything you do is derivative, unoriginal or horrible. I find myself constantly wondering if stuff is cheesy, terrible or good. I suffer from Impostor syndrome a bit and have a hard time feeling like anything I do is good enough or even passably good. So once it finally clicked I was very very happy and felt like I made some progress.
    If you get Cubase in any form, you can always PM me for advice on how to get started

    (or whatever else DAW you want maybe I can still help out with something)

    yup if it wasn't fun there would be no point.

    Thanks man. I will probably end up with Reaper or Abelton lite. I have a pretty good grasp of the recording process - its mastering that will probably give me the most grief.

    One, you're wrong, but thank you. And two, if you really think that, then at least know that most of the time I feel exactly the same about my own playing as you feel about yours, and that no one listens to themself play and thinks, "FUCK yeah, I'm fucking AWESOME!" and that feeling like you kinda suck is actually pretty normal, and can even be constructive if - as it did here - that drives you to practice more and get better. So there's that.

    Another Reaper user/true believer checking in here, and I'd be happy to help with any questions you have if you go down that route.

    It had been so long I forgot that whole saga exists .

    Congrats V on getting back into it. Whenever I have the time, I'm reminded that I can't play metal very well anymore. But my ability to write pretty, spacey, clean stuff is decent .

    Like Leon said - is it fun? Yes? Keep going!
