When you record songs, do you play the entire piece or cut and paste passages that you are pleased with?

I keep making small mistake during my playing so I won't publish a recording but maybe I should just paste different passages that are well played? I don't know..

I guess it depends on the skill level...like me, I am going to record DAWN so I will probably use different cuts and use those for different camera angles for a more artistic presentation. laugh
I even do that some times when singing, since the recording must be perfect unlike live performances. smile

I do some "post production" editing. Some times I get all in one take, but if I screw up, I'll usually just start that section over and cut out the bad one. I normally just record the audio, so I don't have to worry about video editing. I don't memorize much, so I also edit out the page turns. I do this all with Audacity.

From a musical standpoint, it is generally better to record the entire composition (or movement) and get a take you are pretty happy with. Then you can go back and record 1 or 2 sections you would like to improve, and edit those in.

A second method would be to record the entire piece several times and cut together the best sections of each take. However, it's easy to reach the point of diminishing returns very quickly this way, unless you are accustomed to the process.

With the first method, be sure you start recording before the spot where you intend to edit to the new take, and continue recording past the point where you intend to edit back to the full take. This will make make sure you are at the correct tempo, and you don't chop the ends of any sustained notes, room ambience, etc.

Hope this helps.
