Which order do you guys lay down your stuff if you are doing it all by yourself?

Bass first? Guitar first? Drums first? etc

It's better if you lay down the guitar first like I do because my drum comes out of a guitar effects processor and it's the same drumbeat all the time. Sure, you can take another drum beat too but......well I lay my guitar at first down.

i stick the metronome on, do each guitar riff by riff, then add my own bass ideas, then add the drums i saw in my head as i was making the song... submit it to the rest of the band, get input... record proper drums, proper bass, and in theory, add vocals last (no vocalist yet )
Firstly I record the drum beat , then The guitar over the drum beat and then the bass ..If for some reason I have to change the songs tempo i record a metronome so i can stay in the zone ..

and If you have time......this :

I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.
Drums first.


Then bass, then rhythm guitar (if available), then lead.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Remember: A prudent question is one half of wisdom.
