I remember Mark saying in at least a couple of videos around the release of the new album that he played songs on a few songs off "Neighborhoods". However, besides Kaleidoscope (since there's a video of him recording guitar for the bridge), I'm not sure which songs he played guitar on. According to interviews, I know that Tom definitely played guitar on Ghost on the Dancefloor, Up All Night, and After Midnight. I suspect that to get the album done faster (towards the end), Mark and Travis presented some songs that were finished instrumentally to Tom, and then asked him to write lyrics and melodies and sing on them. I think people would be correct in saying that the more AVA sounding songs had songwriting and guitar playing contributions from Tom. Here's my speculations for who played guitar on the songs I haven't mentioned already:
Tom: Natives, Snakecharmer, Wishing Well, This is Home, Love is Dangerous
Mark: Heart's All Gone Interlude, Heart's All Gone, MH 4.18.2011, Fighting the Gravity, Even If She Falls
I suspect that Heart's All Gone Interlude was all Mark; and that Fighting the Gravity, MH 4.18.2011, and Heart's All Gone were created by Mark and Travis with very little input from Tom.
What do you all think / what have you all heard from interviews about who plays guitar on songs off "Neighborhoods" that I'm not aware of, that I haven't discussed here?
