A wonderfully delicate track from Oli here. Was pretty tough to decide what to come up with but I felt it needed to be gentle. In the end, I decided to use my ailing ProMark HotRods for this to try and help the delicacy whilst giving drive to the track.

Also being brave as the drums are largely unprocessed. Apart from EQ on the overheads to remove the 'gonginess' of the cymbals and a little high-end enhancement on the snare, they are completely as the mics heard them. No other compression, EQ or gates - nothing. Well, the MP3 mix has a smidge of reverb on there.

Steady sixteenths on the snare work well with HotRods so went for that, moving onto the ride for a couple of sections. Structurally, this is a surprisingly difficult track! Using my Premier XPK Birch/Eucalyptus snare with my Spaun kit.

** PLEASE USE OLI'S MIX: #71666 **

** APOLOGIES: HD MIX HAS THE GUITAR ON. SORRY**

you make it sounds easy Martin, but I know it's not, your drums lift up the song, and love the way you smooth flow on this track

Thank you, Oli. You know your tracks scare me! Your tracks are *so* hard to do 'right'! But I love the challenge of trying to get into the feel of them. One cannot just blast through or jam them. You have to feel them.

And for that I'm thankful. You always bring out the 'musician' in me. How to 'feel' a song. Keep them coming. :) :)
