Re: Stanton Moore here
i met you with bernhard at drummerlive in london. i have both your dvds and your latest cd stanton3. excellent stuff. i've been working a lot with just the one 2nd line pattern you show ...RRLRRLRL. it is really enjoyable once you hear the clave in there and have the hihat going. i've even added a cut down (sliced in half) 13'' tom to the left of my hihat to act as a pandero. i've tuned it lower than my floortom. i try to incorporate the pattern into solos where possible by breaking it over the kit. sounds killer though i know i'm still playing it too straight ... kind of like that 'i like candy' song by the bangles.
anyway just wanted to say thanks for opening my eyes and ears to new orleans.
