I have been working on a particular GMC lesson for more time than I care to admit to ..and I wish to record it. My issue is the lesson contains a fast run that I just continue to stumble on . If I play the run over and over I can eventually get it.. but nailing it within the context of the song is simply beyond my current ability. I swear if I had nickle for every time I have played this series of notes I could retire.
So now I am at a crossroads, everything I have recorded to this point been done in one take. I am wondering if its more common to just continue work on something until you can nail it in one take or "punt" and utilize the functionality of the DAW software and do multiple takes of say a difficult passage and then patch the best take into the song. I am bit of a newbie at this but it appears this multiple take process is possible with Reaper.
I fully realize that nailing something in one take would be preferable..however I am near saturation with this and beginning to get frustrated. Advice appreciated.
