As always, a wonderfully delicate template from Oli, impeccably performed, recorded and full of intricacies and subtle gotchas which stop you from hitting record and following a traditional jam structure!

I knew early on what I wanted to play but wasn't sure how to play it. My inspiration, of all things, is Oasis' song 'Wonderwall'! It's just rolling 16th notes on the snare, picking out the backbeat as accents. The quandary was which medium: sticks, brushes or my Hot Rods.

I chose the Pro-Mark Hot Rods in the end (these are sticks of bamboo tied together to form, I suppose, a 'hard brush') as they gave the delicacy of the brushes but with a little more power when needed, plus a harder sound.

Amazingly for me, this take is unedited or corrected. I was pretty happy with it without needing to break open the editor.


No reverb on HD.

Thank you, Relativity. Much appreciated. I always fear Oli's high-standards of performance and songwriting in his templates - focuses the mind for sure!

I fear Oli's mix standards too! You're not alone!
