It's funny. I think I'm done for the day and then Marc posts a cracker like this. Sorry, I really should stop uploading but tunes like this are just irresistible!

I marked out the sections in Reaper, knowing roughly in my head what I wanted to play. When I sat at the kit to rehearse some of the sections, it turned out the beat I had in my head just didn't work. It was awful. I was hoping to keep it up-tempo, dropping to half time for the end section. As soon as I played I fell straight into this accentuated half-time feel with an emphasis on a reggae-style off-beat on the hi-hat. Funny how these things work out.

In the end, a syncopated half-time throughout with lots of hi-hat dynamic just worked best - the drums wrote themselves. Really gave it that slow funk feel for me.

I hope you all like it. I'll go away now and stop uploading!

Thanks, Marc. I hope it isn't too over-the-top. It just seemed the right thing to play. :)

It comes real natural to my ears so it feels real good! Your accents are just right, it's lifting the track!
