PgPete dropped me a line asking if I'd take a look at this tune. I didn't need asking twice - what a great latin-infused track from Pete, Wade and Kimbo here.

Initially I considered a bossanova but decided it was too twee so went for a more backbeat approach, a sort of Santana effort. Instead, I'm playing a backbeat but playing on the toms too to lend it more of a latin lilt which I feel gives the track a little more drive but keeps the style. Went for a full-on gated reverb on the snare to give it the late '80s Santana sound.

Oh yes, watch the cheeky bars of 5/4 on the turnarounds!!

Playing my Yamaha kit with my Ludwig snare covered in gaffer tape.

Enjoy.

No reverb on the HD drums.

Great drumming and like the way you explain the process you go through to come to the finished article ...... hope this is a good sign for the loops that the shoulder is mending!

Hey Martin, now that's what I'm talking about!. I'm glad that you explained the creative process you went through - I too was initially thinking a bossa beat but noticed Kimbos guitar parts were a bit " Santana" in places - and adjusted accordingly. and yeah, the 5/4 bars were conveniently placed in spots where the arrangement meant I didnt have to play that awkward extra beat. Well done!

So good to have you on this. Classy play that give contrast to my silliness. Yea difficult turnaround and I'm sure I didn't help much with my off rhythm play. Good job!
