    just got home from the studio.
    it was a trip.
    chad was great, and so was everyone else.....except....
    on the first song, I had people comin at me from all angles, tellin me play it like this, don't play it like that.
    messed me up.
    they learned on the 2cnd and third songs just to let that boy play.
    so when I was done, they had me go back and do the first song again.
    this time they didn't say a damn thing.
    I said.....whatchoo want me to play?
    they said.....just do yer thing.
    so I did.
    my fangers hurt.
    but we got it done.
    no sleep and all.
    now I wanna do it again.

    It would be interesting to hear both versions.

    I'd love to spend some time in a studio.

    Did you learn anything that was just opposite of what you expected?

    That happened to me recently on a session where I was playing bass. I worked out a fun, melodic bass line for this one song and then everyone started wanting to change it on the spot. I tried all their ideas and in the end the producer / guitar player decided that what I originally came up with worked the best in the end anyway.

    I'm glad you got to "do yer thing" after all was said and done.
