Deceptive track, this one. Much harder than it sounds to do well, I feel. Tried to go for a laid-back shuffle/swing groove.

This was the first recording of today with yet another mic arrangement on the kit. I've removed the hi-hat mic as the overheads seem to pick up plenty and use it instead to mic up the ride cymbal which always seems to get lost. I've only 8 inputs so can't do both and have two mics on the snare as well.

I've also moved my overheads again. I've been trying an X/Y overhead configuration for a few days but it seems to cause stereo separation problems. So I've gone back to a more traditional stereo position.

Enjoy.

Very cool, thanks for joining. Tricky one alright, it is a very heavily syncopated shuffle.

Thanks, JM! I sat down and thought, 'yeah, no problem'. I was wrong. Really needs to swing and the drums stay out of the way. Excellent template!
