This track has been languishing in Reaper for nearly a month. I've tried a few times to record it and each time got frustrated. So I tried again today and seem to have got away with it. It's a tough track switching from tight, up-tempo phrasing to laid-back half-time swing. Took some judicious editing at mixdown though!! And sorry about some of the more 'interesting' fills. I just felt a bit of time bending would be fun!

I didn't realise Tof had added and his bass won't work with this recording as he played the quiet sections both straight and up-tempo where as I went half-time shuffle as I felt it had a swing. Oh well, just the excuse I need to go back and do a second one!

Using Ludwig snare and Spaun kit. Still learning these Waves plugins!


No reverb on the HD drums.

WadeWade Man that is tough! I guess we all need challenges from time to time. Kudos to you my friend. I'd have given up.

I wont ask why you'd feel you need to give up - you're more than up to the job! But thank you - your comments are always inspiration for me!

Just being honest. I'm just a jammer and generally don't have the patience to work out something. So many great tracks, so little time. If it doesn't make it after a couple tries...on to the next one.

Great respect to those who write/develop these wonderful tracks and those who take the time to do their you.

Did I mention 2:37? That's a bit of genius.

MarceysMarceys Played this on my way home in the car with loud speakers! I saw some people dancing in the street on it Martin! :)
Way cool drums, i was hoping for some real drums to this track where OliVBee did some great coloring on the guitar!
Tricky to play I can assume but you nailed it so good! Sorry for my inconsitence in this track! :)

Thanks, Marc. You weren't inconsistent, it's just a tough track switching from manic to laid-back. It's a superb template of yours which is why I wouldn't let it beat me. It's difficult tracks like this which keep me sane! You wouldn't believe how much this sort of track helps me learn to switch playing style quickly as well as push my musical grey matter!
