Tim was back in town in June 2009, and we did the stupendous The Johnson Array session with Killer Voyage.

8zone of tone2006.05.20Andy - electric guitar (strat) Tim - bass Drum loops from GarageBand, arranged by Tim and Andy Tim came over May 20, 2006 for an afternoon. I'd just gotten my new Taylor 310 (acoustic guitar), but after we checked it out on the deck and talked a while I didn't record with it. This is partly because I'd previously busted the G string and replaced it with a non-Elixer Daddario string that sounded different to me. And this was a rockin' loop we got going on, with Tim riffin out and me jammin over it --and check the little grunty yeah yeah noises in the drum loop! We recorded a splurge of jammin' over the loops with me on electric guitar (Strat) and Tim on bass (Eric's Ibanez Roadstar). It was a fun jam, and the first 5 minutes or more weren't even recorded. I wanted to let Tim just rock with what he wanted to do as far as arrangement, wanted to give him a taste of producing what's in your head with a multi-track program like this. Those Apple Loops are pretty awesome. We jammed out, then played around with some cutting and pasting and tried to build an arrangement. It took longer and than TIm probably expected, but we got something pretty cool done in about 3 hours. Mix 1 is pretty much as we left the mix when Tim had to go that afternoon. I may or may not do anything else with this. Cool jam! Small World! 701lefty looseyThe Tim & Andy Bandhttp://mangobananas.com/img/icons/sixfootmoles.jpg

11cuban sandwich2007.07.12Tim: bass (2 tracks) Andy: guitar (Strat) (3 tracks), drum programming, acoustic guitar Jon: drum kit Recording started 8 Feb 2006 in mangobananas studio, Ithaca, NY, with Tim and Andy recording loops. Another quick jam with Tim (Feb 8, 2006) over a drum beat I programmed with the mouse using Ultrabeat synth. This has some cool effects and potential for layering -- I can hear a gravelly rap over this, some urban devolution and psychedelic descent. On July 2 (Jon jam 4) Jon overdubbed drums while I played strat doing some soloing. When mixing and arranging that I found an acoustic guitar part that I layed in for 8 or 10 measures as an alternate part. Recorded that on the Taylor with the usual 2 mic setup on July 5, 2007. Also, while I was walking though the song 2 bars at a time doing the drum comps, I heard goovy parts and I played around and recorded with clavinet (EVD6) and piano (EXS24). The piano part is becoming the vocal melody (or counter-melody) in my head. That got me to this final mix on July 12, 2007.701lefty looseyThe Tim & Andy Bandhttp://mangobananas.com/img/icons/sixfootmoles.jpg

24into the station2007.11.20Tim - drum programming, bass Andy - drum programming, guitars Tim visiting from the UK, an afternoon of fun in the studio....Nov 20, 2007. The awesome rhythm comes from the trains in England via Tim, the great syncopation and melding of the two parts was awesome. I played my Strat, Tim played Eric's bass. We both went DI thru the Firepod, jamming together to find the riffs while monitoring thru the studio monitors. We recorded bits for different loops separately. The guitar doing the rhythm crunch is tuned CADGBE (E dropped down to a C). Logic's bass amp and guitar amp plugins were used on all gits. 701lefty looseyThe Tim & Andy Bandhttp://mangobananas.com/img/icons/sixfootmoles.jpg
