Hi Manny, I have been recording myself at home for about a year now. I think it helped me tremendously. One problem that I can't solve is; sometimes in fast sections I play just a little behind the beat. I can't tell when I am playing, but when I listen I can hear it. When it gets really bad I catch up in the next couple of beats. I have tried slowing things down but when it gets fast it's the same. I don't understand why I can't hear this when I am playing.
