We’re digging into this groovy and muscular track filled with odd times! I go into detail about how to play the main groove, how the intro doesn’t start on beat 1, as well as the often overlooked B section, including the difficult transition back into the main groove! I also talk about the miking and tuning of the kit and how, possibly, this track was slowed down!
Brian thanks Ludwig drums, Paiste cymbals and gongs, Remo heads, Promark sticks and Canopus snare wire for their top notch gear and support! Also find me and these fine companies on Facebook and Twitter.
