    Thanks Dan, reg3an and Ola.

    Haven't had much to add lately which would be of any use. If something comes up I'll try to keep the thread updated.

    What a great material this is!!

    As a home studio owner/do-it-all musician, once upon a time I used to record, record and record stuff. At first you think EVERYTHING you do/record is 'pure-sonic-gold'. But, if you allow some time to go by, you will realize what true value each of your ideas has (and also realize that most of them are not even worth spending much +time on). Strange how one can be instantly judgemental and harshly critic of someone else's work, but how it takes a considerable amount of time acquiring the same level of criticism over one's stuff.

    Nowadays I am obssesed trying to have a 'decent guitar tone'. I look back and wonder how I was even able to record stuff with the tone(s) I had. As I hear some of the posts in here I think to myself ''oh, shit, this is the best tone ever''. Then I listen to another that makes me forget about the previous one.

    In defense of the noobs, or I don´t know if it's just me, but there's sum about this forum that makes it look 'kinda messy' (maybe the black-ish bkg?)

    I sure miss those days in which I recorded actual music and advanced in my songs, without being so self-conscious about tone :(

    Ermz' man I can't thank you enough for the post- like everyone else has said in their own experience, you hit the nail on the head with everything. I too am guilty of most of what you wrote- your Full Circle section was crazy man... I had to stop reading for a while and though about that. Makes me feel a whole lot better about my position knowing that I'm not alone. Very informative and humbling post- If you were to write a book I would buy it as well hahaha

    Thank you so much, this will be referred to down the road many times for me

    You guys are very welcome.

    I keep meaning to update the thread with new ideas, but they flee from memory as soon as I get around to it. Hopefully in the near future!

    +1 to the last point.

    I pushed everything crazily hard a few months back, ultimately it just meant I got less done than if I'd just gone to bed!
