I have always been a sympathetic player.
I’ve always been in situations where I felt I was backing someone else up, and the object is to make them feel comfortable so they can do what they do the best they possibly can. I always wanted to have that kind of an attitude rather than my showing them up or anything like that.
So, going into the studio, I had to compromise, but it wasn’t hard for me to do that. You learn what to play and what not to play and you get very relaxed.
