I use this method often......I love to pic up on a little phrase or run that one of the musicians plays
sometimes I'll use it verbatim and repeat it over and over voiced around the kit......this usually brings a little smile thrown my way from the guy who played it and we have a little laugh .....then he may throw something I did back at me
...and sometimes I'll just use it as a spring board or portal to other ideas

great stuff brother .....always love your blogs
such useful practical stuff

Thanks Tony, you bring up a good point. The big disclaimer on this technique is that it requires the cooperation of everyone involved. If only you are trying to do this it really doesn't work. Also, as you said, the phrase can be repeated verbatim or interpreted much more loosely, so there is actually a great deal of flexibility inside of this.
