Nice to hear that others are making use here of the range of colors that VI and MIDI allow. [QUOTE=FrankHudson;6238665]

When I got back into playing a few years ago after a 10 year hiatus I was amazed by the technological leap that took place. I didn't even know what DAW, midi, and VI even were. The light came on and I never looked back. I am hooked for life.

I usually find a sample that fits the song and adjust the beats per minute so it fits my guitar timing. Then I will add intros and fillers for the changes. If I can't find one they provide I will add the filler from my midi keyboard. It is a time consuming process but I like the end results.

The strings, flute and bass I play on my midi keyboard using vst plugins.
I would always record guitar over a backing drum or click track generated by the DAW software. I use the Logic Pro X Drummer for this purpose.
If you work in that order you are in sync with the sequencer.
This has advantages when you start editing, and will likely make the song timing tighter.

I agree and do use a click track a lot when recording the guitar part first. It took awhile to get used to though.
