This has been sat on my to-do list for quite a while. I really like the ethereal quality of the piano line.

With such floaty, almost lazy piano going on, I wanted to be the opposite - a drum machine-like constant acting almost as the nemesis to the piano, a sort of 'good and bad' battle if you will. I know it sounds silly, but that was what I wanted to achieve.

I had only one shot at playing this through as the hi-hat line hammers my left hand doing constant doubles like this. It's really tiring on the wrist. The hi-hat is doing R LLR LLR etc. with the right hand coming across for the snare. To sustain at this speed for a couple of minutes is hard work. But I was determined to do it.

A you can hear towards the end, my left hand gave up and I changed the hi-hat line on-the-fly to something a bit less hard work.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
