What a fine piece of authentic blues from BluesBrothers, jcgbass and Balfo - a formidable mix of great players.

Approach here was to just stay out of the way as much as possible. In particular the hi-hat is just on the beat with only the odd skip note chucked in here and there. Trying to achieve the really lazy, fat-sounding blues of New Orleans. For me, that means playing less, not more.

Also, on mix-down, rolled off the top-end of my kit to remove some of the brightness from my cymbals as it seemed too 'clean' and precise.

Enjoy.
