I decided to take a stab at seeing if I could mimic the studio recording of one of my favorite songs. Shelf in the Room by Days of the New!
I played my guitar for all the parts and used synthesized drums and bass. I didn't sing the songs vocal parts even though I can sing fairly decent, I decided to play the vocal part on guitar! Although THIS ISN'T FINISHED YET, so it cuts out after most of the first verse. I've just been working on many projects and never around to finishing it.
To the untrained, this probably sounds absolutely fantastic in quality... but to the trained ear they can tell it isn't a professional recording right off the bat.
