Latin and Jazz. That's two styles of music! ;)

This pattern is partly inspired by Gregory Porter's excellent track '1960 What?' and is just a latin-style jazz pattern (or jazz-style latin pattern?). There's no real structure to it, I'm largely just playing the same thing round and round for three minutes mostly because it took a fair bit of work to be able to play it smoothly and introducing complex fills would've just made me trip over myself!

Took all the damping off my drums, tuned up the tom tom, used my 17" crash cymbal as a ride cymbal and mixed largely using the overheads to try and get a bit more clatter to the sound.

No idea what you guys can do with it but a nice bit of upright bass wouldn't go amiss! The title, apart from riffing on Gregory Porter's title, is a pun on the year I was born.


HD drums have no reverb on them.

jcgbass123jcgbass123 This setup and sound is so classic. You could nail down just about anything from the Doors. How about a little Riders on the Storm? I love the sound!

Thanks, jcg. Just had a listen to Riders On The Storm (I don't really know my Doors) and I do know it. I'll see if I can come up with a template based on it. Always glad to try out new recordings.

mpointonmpointon If it'll help people, it will line up to a metronome in a DAW. I'm happy to supply a version with the click on it too. 😀

I agree it's not as intuitive as, say, Take Five. As I mention above, happy to supply a copy with the click on for recording.
