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.
Good point. I have mainly comped vocals and I have always just done multiple full takes. But it would be interesting to try section at a time.

And of course you can set up loop recoding for section at a time as well
