Considering you can hear a mouse farting in the next field when one goes camping, the last thing you need is a drummer next door! But that's what you get! This has been on my to-do since Marc uploaded it but I've just not got round to it. Hope I've not emptied the campsite.

As always, this is a wonderful template from Marc; full of expression and creative scope. I tried to combine subtlety and drive with this one, whilst also honouring some of the space and phrasing opportunities. Unfortunately, when it came to mixing, I realised I'd made quite a few timing mistakes which I've done my best to fix... There were quite a few edits!

Was tough to balance too without resorting to major volume automation which I didn't do. Sorry.


No reverb on the HD drums.

MarceysMarceys That's a marvelous detailed way of playing Martin! You managed to play so much accents in your drums! Think thats pretty hard to do, I always play to much accents and not always with the best accurate.... love it again Martin! Let's hear it for the bass!

Thanks, Marc. Your templates are always thought-provoking but this was very challenging to get a beat whilst being supportive.

CountryboyCountryboy You are a keen musician!do you analyze the music before playing, or during the time ?? This is really good!

I played it through a couple of times to decide what to play before recording. Luckily, the waveform is easy to see the changes so I didn't need to mark out the sections.
