What were those (recording)sessions like for you as a guitar player? We were all quite young. I just had my Engl Powerball at the time and that's pretty much all I used. There wasn't much experimenting with guitar tones on "Take to the Skies." The studio we were recording at were very sort of militant about what they did. I remember for instance or singer Rou [Reynolds], the engineer or the producer was basically saying the whole time, "Oh, no. Only sing or scream. It's got be clear cut." All the drums had to be triggered and all the vocals had to have Auto-Tune even if they weren't out of tune and stuff.more
