'We all love the things we do and when we improve the ways we do them it feels amazing.' I'm paraphrasing, the ad said something like this, it was on TV, for deodorant or something, can't remember.

It makes me wanna run scales on the electric guitar early in the morning, with a metronome and some coffee. Got me thinking how I could improve the recording process......Whats the number one way you could improve the things you create?
