I record mostly by myself and it is indeed possible to influence your playing and have interaction between instruments. The way I do it I just consciously start leaving spaces in say first rhythm guitar I track and then you can immediately start bouncing off that track. Once all tracks are laid down you can also go back and re-record the first part. Not the same as playing with a band but it does work.
