Interesting template from Rainer. It does have a contemporary 'old swing' feel but I'd also argue there's more than a whiff of Charleston to it too!

Either way, it's hardly my forte so I went for a very straight and traditional swing, if you'll pardon the mixed metaphor. I hope it's worked.

Just a shame I have no idea how to get my drums sounding like they were being played in some smoke-filled '30s prohibition Speakeasy bar!

Enjoy.

No reverb on the HD drums.

R1772R1772 Some extra "thanks" to you,friends, for all these comments - I didn´t know if there is any interest for this "outdated" style:-).

I find many musicians have a very open mind towards 'traditional' music style. You have to look to the history of music in order to progress it!

I've just had a long chat with my mother and I'm wrong - it's too slow for a Charleston! I stand corrected!

And I've been informed the Charleston was the '20s and not the '30s! I am indeed in the wrong!

That´s very interesting, Martin.I had set the tempo in my Imagination without orientation on swing, Charleston or such..but I listen very often to old 20ies and 30ies tunes..or..to Pasadena Roof Orchestra (from GB) :-)

R1772R1772 Dear Akchen, I´m happy you like Martin´s masterful drum add - his great "rolls" alone proof what a "real" drummer can do - nearly impossible to program with "midi":-)).
