Bouncy Bonzo

Remix step #2 (playing)

I know you said you were just trying out ideas, Nuno, and it wasn't technically a jam but I couldn't resist a pop. Decided to put on my best 'Bonzo does Kashmir' hat, pulled the pillow out of my bass drum and went for it. There's quite a few cheeky 5/4 (or 9/8 depending on how you're counting!) bars in that main riff, Nuno! I think I coped with where most of them were but I was kind of winging them as they weren't always the same!

Re-listened to this fine add of yours & have to apologise to you because you must have suffered here dealing w/ 1 of my many flaws :P, although you pulled it off perfectly :
When jamming alone i've a real hard time keeping good time, let alone counting or knowing what meter i'm doing or.. i'm clueless !!
This can only be very disturbing to a drummer of your OBVIOUS skills !! & When i play over an existing drum track.. then i benefit from drummer's typical solidity
Only after establishing parts/rehearsing things proper ( takes me a while.. ) do i manage to nail it, slightly mechanical at 1st & flowing/freshness only happens later when i finally interiorise the tune & then yes, i can play it right on the money time wise & swing/groove nicely & solidly along yet i will still have a hard time counting parts - it's nuts !! :D :D
Maddening but i LOVE coming up with stuff & immersing my whole self in sound - it's SO MUCH FUN, i just keep doing it !
Hope i'm forgiven.. :D

No worries, Nuno! :) I love the extra beats here and there in this and *NEVER* apologise for not using metronomes, etc.! You played it your way with your personality - it's mine and others' jobs to work with it and music always sounds better when everyone's together, even if everyone is technically not in with a metronome. Pieces sound far worse if you stick religiously to the click and not the tune going on around it. A metronome is a guide, not a master.

Your template's fluidity and natural flow - extra beats or not (I was just observing!) - which gave me the idea of the Bonham/Kashmir approach. I felt it gave it a real counterpoint to your syncopation. Brilliant template. :)

Thanks, Oli. I'm getting the hang of recording them now. Still not satisfied with the snare sound - too much bark and not enough sizzle although it works well with this, I agree.

The main difficulty is the overheads, I think. If I dial enough in to give the snare more presence, the cymbals practically give everyone within a mile lifetime tinnitus. I need to do more work on their position.
