I've been wanting to try a project for a while to see how reasonable I could do a marketable recording/instrumental on a shoestring budget in my home. As you are aware, technology has grown leaps and bounds in a short time period. What I used:

ZOOM H4n with built in X&Y mics
Rack mount effects unit
Peavey amp
Band in a Box software

The nice thing about this, is you're not in a rush as you're only using your time in your own privacy. Yes there is some non-perfect challenges. As you get better at the situation with experience, you work them out. Lots of fun for me.

The only thing now is to have one of my guitar buddies here in Nashville to lay down a guitar lead right before the out-tro. Here is a sample thus far.

I was asked how far I place the Zoom X&Y mics and what effect unit am I using.

Mics are 12 inches away from the speaker.

I'm using an Alesis Midiverb 4 rack unit.
