Yeah, I agree. Drums or bass. Get everything figured out how you want it to be, lay the drums down, and build off of that. Kind of like a pyramid, just keep building up, vocals being on top.

If its just YOU (no band)

Drums
(i record a dry kit to a clicked piano or guitar playing the "key melody line/chord outline")
Then Bass...
Then its off to the races...
(and into Reason/Acid/C-Base/Sonar/etc fer severe brain trauma, lol)

Id depends on what I hear in my head first. Sometimes it's the bass line and sometimes it's the guitar. Then I figure what the drums should sound like and I lay down the drums first for timming. Then the bass. Then I can lay down rhythm guitar and sometimes a second guitar and lastly any solos.
