When you listen back to your recorded performances, you'll quickly find that recording what you play can push you to develop new skills and sharpen the ones you already have to improve how you play to grow as a musician. If you want to get better-sounding recordings you have to practice recording your music.
You can be much more proactive about how your fans will hear, remember, and share your music simply by providing them with a decent recording to view, download or stream. This recording can come in several flavors and you can certainly scale your recording efforts to match your budget and immediate goals.
