Back on my Yamaha kit. Gone all '70s here. Moved my overheads into the traditional X/Y position, covered the drums in damping, put the kick mic right inside the kick drum, put in loads of damping. Then, it would appear, went a bit nuts. Now I'm knackered.

My remit with this fab retro template from Frank was to do a kind of Billy Cobham impression from his Mahuvishnu Orchestra days. I'm no match for Billy Cobham - few are. So I just kinda did something in his 'style'. Basically big fills (lots of swiss triplets - his trademark) and busy, slightly-odd beats.

Has it worked? Only the loops can decide that! I had to punch in three times to complete the track but I *think* it works, if you approach it from the '70s rock-jazz standpoint.

Feedback on the attempt at a '70s drum sound welcome too.

I've uploaded here rather than Pudsy's excellent effort to give others a play too.

Enjoy.
