I wish I had known just what an impact recording yourself has on your playing long ago. I'd been doing it with 8mm or VHS back in the day and by now I would be a drum demigod LOL or just given up more I think about it. Shocking is perhaps the best word to describe watching yourself the first time-so weird what you think sounds great behind the kit sounds like vomit in front or at a distance. You find all kind of fast intricate stuff you think sounds great really sounds like a dirty fart-something is lost in translation-too many notes. I'm continually amazed just how good it sounds to play solid and simple versus busy and noisy. Alas I'm a busy noisy guy so there lies the rub. but I'm slaying that dragon.
