One related question: What is the average length of time to record a cover song using a backing track? I just want a ballpark average so that I can kind of guage how much time I'm taking to record a song, and whether I should drop the song because it is too difficult and try something simpler, or not.
That all depends on the individual song....some songs have multiple guitar tracks and some are doubled for instance crazy train would take much longer than cumbersome just becuase of the number of guitar tracks and involvment.
I have done them in less than a day up to most of a month depending on the time I have to work on it and getting frustrated and or just not happy with the out come....
The time factor also depends on the familarity with the recording software you are using, which gets faster the more you learn the ins and out's of it...
so I never really put a time frame on it. I have a bunch of unfinished things that I was going to "get back" too also...
