Q: Have you ever thought of using another producer, to allow your-self more time with the guitar?

FZ: I would if I thought I could find somebody who would produce things the way I want to hear them. But the details that I worry about when I go into a studio are how the board is laid out, what EQ is going to be on the stuff you're listening to in the headphones, what kind of echo you're going to be using, how long you should be taking to do such-and-such a thing because at $150 an hour you don't want to be wasting your time in there. It's hard once you've got all that stuff sat up to just walk in and play and forget about it. I'll spend anywhere from three to nine hours just getting the sound on the rest of the band right before I'll record. On this new album (ZootAllures) it's different, because I did a lot of tracks just starting with a Rhythm Ace and building all the stuff up from there. What I usually do is, play the guitar from the control board while the band is playing, or else have the band lay down a track and then put mine on later.

I always thought it was somewhere diffident too even FZ album around same time.

If this is a formal response it should be Mr.Sniffer, if it is casual it should simply be Dick, but if its a role call Dick Sniffer would be appropriate... :smoke:
