New Pictures from the Studio: Tim on SitarPosted by Joe M in Album News at 11:40pm on Tuesday, Feb 3rd, 2009
We have some new pictures from the studio where the Dave Matthews Band is recording the currently untitled new album. One of which is Tim Reynolds playing the sitar in the traditional style with shoes removed. The sitar (an Indian long neck lute) is not new to Tim. He began playing it during the 1980ís. It's one in a line of many instruments Tim can play outside his domination of the acoustic and electric guitar, they include the bass, piano, mandolin, violin, and many ethnic percussion instruments (to name a few). Tim also played electric sitar on Some Devil's Too High and Dave on So Damn Lucky, though the electric sitar is quite different than its parent. Even though the band is in the final stages of recording, this doesn't mean it will make the cut to the album. They routinely record more music than what appears on the album, but it's great to see the band not going 'cookie cutter' in the studio.
There are also a number of other photos, including Carter Beauford's traditional Yamaha drum set and the studios Yamaha grand piano in the background (though piano's are commonly found in studios.) Interestingly in the picture of the drum set, the kit is elevated with a "backdrop" and there is ground lighting of the drum kit. Why all the trouble? Could they be recording some footage in the studio for the music video to the bands first single? Or special bonus material? Just thought I'd throw that out there. Also are some pictures of Dave's guitars from the studio. It appears nothing was left behind; with acoustic and electric both making appearances. They include; Taylor, Gibson, Danelectro, and the Veillette Gryphon (small high tuned guitar, ex: Idea of You, and yes, Shotgun). Producer Rob Cavallo additionally had a guitar made for Dave that looks like a Fender Stratocaster. Also pictured is the well-played favorite 6-string Taylor 914C with its wear and tear following the path of Trigger, Willie Nelsons guitar. Follow the link to check out the studio pictures.
