Spruce Moose Proves Groove Move

Session template

+ 21
Marceys requested this kind of groove based on a band he sent me links to. First off, the band in question are just awesome. Not fair. At all.

Secondly, this was really, really hard to record with no reference music. In the end, I found a funky template on the 'Loops, downloaded it, adjusted it to the tempo I wanted and played along to give me something to work against. It really helped.

There are three sections. All pretty much the same beat but one's on the hi-hat, one's on the ride and one's on my china cymbal. There's loads of random pushes and phrases but not much rhyme or reason to them so feel free to ignore them. Structure is:

16 bars hi-hat ('section 1')
8 bars ride cymbal ('section 2')
16 bars section 1
8 bars section 2
8 bars china ('section 3')
20 bars section 2
16 bars section 1
16 bars section 3

JeanMarcJeanMarc Hey I really, really want to use these in one of my tracks! It's to be published on Spotify and I'm more than happy to write you down as a featured artist in the title if you're ok with it!

Of course! I'm jusr about to publish so was wondering how you'd like your name to appear. The track is called Riding Time and so will show up as 'Riding Time (ft. mpointon)'. Unless you want your name or something else? Please get in touch ASAP, really excited to get the track out there and show it to you!

MarceysMarceys Great drumming Martin! It is very hard for drummers to record a track without any reference of an other instrument! Think you have to get some kind of song in your head.... You made a very good track here! Gonna try something the moment I'm behind the keys again! cheerzzz

It was weird. I knew the groove to play but I just couldn't do it without some kind of reference. And the reference I used changed what I played. Very frustrating.

no frustration please! It's a great track!

It's ok - frustration was short-lived :)
