Another gem from Marc which I'd completely forgotten about and left on my to-do list. Fabulous and challenging piece in equal measures.

Initial quiet section was tough and in the end I opted for a basic jazz pattern, punctuating Marc's key stabs. From there into a simplified version of a well-known pattern - Jeff Porcaro's 'Roseanna beat', of course. Back to the quiet section and then into one of my favourite beats of all-time: a Nanigo. It's a posh word for 'double paradiddle between the ride, hi-hat and snare'. It just sat right. Then into a straight time with a pushing hi-hat. Drop down. Back up again and then hit the outro.

Remarkably I did this in one clean run but missed the last two damn stabs of the song so they've been edited, as have a couple of places to tidy up messy bits. I hope you enjoy. One of my favourite templates from you, Marc :)

Thanks, Ake. I'm genuinely proud of this one - I don't often say that! :D

Man! Love your playing here! Real good! Great changes and just the right feel! :)

Thank you, Marc. I love templates of yours like this. You leave so much room for people who add to help decide where to take the feel of the your music. Your intro - just simple pushed chords leaves so much space for the imagination. Yes, it maybe challenging but I love how you leave those who follow some level of control.

Then you funk out. I love it when you funk out! Please do not ever stop posting templates of this calibre.

Thank you so much, Wade. The drum patterns wrote themselves for me. It's one of those templates that I could hear straight away what I needed to play. Apart from the opening bit - had to think about that! :)

I've created a "todowhenback" list!

thumbs thumbs! very good Martin! This would be so much better to play when I was in the same room as you! I always play this with only a clicktrack.... have to try and keep all the accents the same... always a hard job....You did very good! A grooving bass to this!!! :)

My break/accents at the end aren't that good... sorry for that....

Perhaps we can manage it in September at the 'Loops meet! Don't worry about perfect timings - humanity is much better than machines and your templates are always fluid. Much better that way!
April 22 2015 16:15:33 Marceys Marceys
Gonna try to arrange something for that! would be cool indeed!:)
April 22 2015 22:47:33 Marceys Wade
Making me sad and jealous. Won't be able to make it to Urft in September. Would really enjoy sitting in with such great talent..
April 22 2015 22:52:37 Marceys Marceys
Thats too bad Wade! I'm also not sure if I can make it but will try for sure!
April 22 2015 23:07:22 Marceys mpointon
It's a bit far for you, Wade :( As I mentioned to others, if you ever need some drums for your own purposes, just ask :D
April 22 2015 23:39:14 Marceys Wade
Thanks! Will certainly keep in mind the offer. I come to Europe to visit my daughter in Norway. 1st Urft meet up was scheduled to coincide last year. Am coming to Europe again 1 May, but the facility at Urft isn't available until September. Won't be able to come then. There will be other times. Cheers!

Thank you bigmac. Please do! I know it had adds, but this was such a great template I couldn't leave it alone.
