Somehow I got it in my head to try to play English Civil War, an old song by The Clash. I though it would be pretty easy because it’s all eighth notes and power chords. It didn’t come out very well, but I didn’t expect it to. I was experimenting with doing multiple tracks in Audacity. I played it through on guitar, then tapped along with it to make a pseudo-percussion track, then sort of sang over it, then threw in some arpeggios. When I exported it to an mp3, Audacity mixed it down to two tracks.
