Cracking tune from Tof. Unfortunately, I heard it with Tof's drums added first so that sort of fusiony playing approach was out of the question. Plus I can't play or sound like EZDrummer :( I just went at it full-on, belting the kit. No room for subtlety, I decided! There's plenty of mistakes - hopefully other adds will mask them! - plus I utterly missed the ending so pasted a bit of drums from somewhere else in the track on the end. Hey ho. It's hot here and I was getting tired.

Using a different snare for this - a Yamaha 8000 Mahogany shell with a Remo Fiberskyn3 head on it, rather than my trusty 50 year-old Ludwig 400. I've also changed my overhead mic positions which has reduced the cymbal heaviness of my recordings. I think it's a more coherent kit sound now. Let me know what you think. Enjoy.

Re-uploaded - previous upload was far too drum-heavy. I hope you enjoy.

Drums Sound Great I like the sound of a acoustic drum better but they are hard to get to sound right usually when recording but you got yours perfectly set :)

Thanks everyone. I feel I was a bit unsubtle with this tune and not really fair to Tof's work but feel better about it now I've listened back this evening. It was really hot earlier and I kept messing up the takes but I was determined to do it in one go, so I took a break and then went for it, hence the couple of messy moments I let in the final mix. I'm toying with having another go at a tidier version tomorrow.

OK guys, this is just perverse !!
Exciting tune, superb playing, the whole nine yards..
Well done MP ;)

Sounds more like driving fast than being stuck. Maybe stuck and dreaming of driving fast. Great track from both of you.
