This drum pattern is very heavily based on Billy Cobham's fantastic '70s track 'Stratus' (most of you would know it if you heard it!).

Anyway, I can't play like Billy Cobham. But I like the groove and it is quite fill-heavy and there's a fair number of pushes and over-the-bar fills going on. Maybe I could argue it's my solo upload given all the recent drum solos going on around here! Sorry about the slightly odd structure. It seems I ...

mpointon Thanks, Cody. I just wish I could do his super-fast fills and swiss triplets! The groove from of one my other favourites, The Pleasant Pheasant, is on my to-do list too. +1

mpointon 88. It's done to a metronome so should be on the money. I hope! +1
Yeah Martin! Really tight and clean! I love the ghost notes on the snare. Really gives the track texture. Great work buddy!+1

mpointon Thanks, wiseshanks! I'm genuinely proud of my ghost notes - one of my few advantages of being a left-hander playing right-handed! I use them too much though, I admit. Just need my right hand to be as expressive! +1

wiseshanks Do you have your kit setup right handed. I play on a right handed kit but I play hi-hat with my left hand and snare with my right. It's a curse but I've been able to drum ok so far... +1

mpointon I'm jealous - you play open-handed. Two of my favourite players, Simon Phillips and Carter Beauford play open-handed. I'm left-handed but play completely right-handed. So kit is set up right-handed and I play right-over-left. To an observer, I'm a right-handed player. Except I'm completely left-handed and left-footed! +0

wiseshanks I didn't know open handed was a thing. I just started playing that way and it stuck. I've tried right over left and it doesn't work. +0

mpointon Trust me when I say I'm jealous. It opens a whole new world of tom work whilst still on the hi-hat which I'm desperate to develop! +1
