All those sessions were live as a band, yes. Tori let me do what I wanted, she was always very gracious like that. Sometimes, like on those two songs you mentioned, I just did the whole melted, impressionistic bass f/x vibe. There's other stuff I've worked on with her that's much more like straight-up bass guitar, tho.
