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!

This is an album of some studio collaborations with Tim in Andy's studio from 2006-2009. Tim and Andy have been recording stuff since 1979.

The first three are from two sessions in 2006, and the fourth from Nov 2007, when Tim was visiting from England. Andy did some further work on "cuban sandwich in early 2007, with more arrangement and instrumentation, and Jon replaced the computer drums with an overdub. Then came another two awesome impovisations with Andy on keys, Tim on fretless acoustic bass on another visit in June 2009. All recorded in mangobananas studios, Ithaca, NY, with Logic playing drums, Tim playing basses, Andy playing guitars and keys.
