A beautiful tune from Pete-Silence, Alice and Marc here. Utterly beguiling.

But a confession first: I recorded and videoed it all and went upstairs to mix it. I then realised looking at the waveforms in Reaper I'd forgotten to switch on my mixing desk which powers my tom mics. So the toms are only what the overheads picked up. Doesn't sound too bad but I won't be making that mistake again.

Went for a sort of Latin-meets-Steve Gadd approach. It's quite busy ...

mpointon Thanks, Marc. This track had a funny genesis for me. Your add appeared after I'd decided to work on the track. I was going to be more straight and gentle but your keys add inspired me to be more different and daring in my approach.

I then decided something a bit more latin-feeling was needed - something with a little syncopation. Then, weirdly, I realised that the '50 Ways To Leave Your Lover' drum line would actually fit. I decided that would be cheeky to use, much as I love playing it that pattern.

So this hybrid pattern came out of that which I worked on to try and keep under control. It sounds far more complicated than it actually is - it's just free-forming 16th around the drums, trying to use as much dynamic as possible! Thanks, Marc. :)

mpointon Thank you, Alice! I was worried I'd overdone it - I knew in my head what I wanted to play but it never works out that way!

I'm so pleased you like it. :)

mpointon Thanks, Kenny. I always worry about doing a video. No idea if people like them and it really puts pressure on a clean performance - no editing! +0
