No idea whether this is funk ballad or ballad funk. It's a lovely tune either way! I decided I'm going for 'Groove Ballad'. The guitars are clean, apart from the chorus sound, and spartan so I decided the best approach was just a busy groove behind them to give the tune more motion. This should allow for a grooving bass line to join in.

I'm back onto my trusty Ludwig snare for this track. I can't seem to improve the tuning of my toms so I think it's time for new heads - they're getting pretty old as it is.

The original template is completely dry and during mixing, my drums didn't sound like they sat with the track at all. In the end, I fed the template to the ambience reverb I put on the overall kit and suddenly everything blended together.

Enjoy.

HD drums have no reverb.
