Rodrigo Y Gabriella

Hey John, I was wondering a little bit about how Rodrigo Y Gabriella work in the studio. Do they just come and and play together live? Or do they track separate? They are incredible musicians with a very unique style of playing, and while I'm sure this makes everyone's job in the studio a little easier, it seems like you may have to be a little more creative about how to capture it correctly. Is it close mics and separation between the two (if they track live), or are room mics used more? If I had to guess I'd say a combination of the two, and that they track together, but that's why I'm asking you! If you know what mics are used I would love to hear that as well.

Also, I read that on the new album coming out in September there are guest musicians on a few songs. Would they perhaps be doing vocals? If so, how does that change their songwriting and does it pose any new problems with getting good results in the studio?

Like everyone else said, thanks a bunch for doing this, you have an incredible catalogue of records you have worked on, and I am a huge fan!
