Ake's been channeling Hendrix again! Great track. I went and found my Mitch Mitchell hat and did my best to play in his style. Basically a ride-based time with random fast fills. Which I sort of managed except Mitch's fills are tight, jazzy and don't fall over half the time like mine did.

I used my 17" crash cymbal as a ride for this recording to decrease definition and get more wash and noise.

For this mix, I ramped up the kit overheads and drowned them in a reverb to try and get that toppy, mic-bleed, '60s sound to my kit.

I hope you enjoy.

HD drums available should anyone else want to make version to solo with. They have the same reverb on them as I thought it was part of the character of the sound.

Thanks! I just wanted to capture noisy, whacked-out stuff! Listening back now, I didn't drown it in enough reverb!

Thanks Drumshticks! Much appreciated. :) He's a really hard act to impersonate. I've played a few Hendrix covers in my time and it's always much harder than it sounds.

Did you ask for a bunch of whacked-out topless women swirling their bras at the stage whilst you were at it?
