I find that going into the recording knowing I only have to nail a section or part of a section, really takes the pressure off of recording. That's the beauty of comping from playlists... you can segment the song into as many sections as you want and then just concentrate on nailing that short section.
Is mic placement ever an issue? I imagine you have to be careful to keep a consistent distance from the mic(s) to maintain consistent sound across takes, right?
