Damn that was tiring. And ineffective! "Thought You Knew" (a bouzouki-led song) is going to need a completely different approach to building a bed track; it just changes tempo too much and frankly doesn't work as a constant tempo song. It just sounds and feels all wrong. There's about five different tempo things going on in it (intro, outro, bridge, chorus/verse, linking material) and I thought I could take the linking elements to the chorus/verse tempo and record most of the song on one beat, with the bridge/intro/outro added in later, but I was WRONG with bold and small caps.
So now I need to figure out whether I just try to do a perfect(ish) nontempoed recording (or close enough that I can patch it cleanly) or do a bunch of tempoed fragments and assemble them into something at least tempo-correct. If you've done this before, suggestions will be happily taken.
