Default Re: Jon Fishman

Another Fishman fan here. He was the first drummer I heard that impressed me in this way that I knew he was something different than other drummers.

Even though there are drummers with more complicated stuff, I like some of his syncopation-driven beats on songs like All Things Reconsidered, Rift, and Limb by Limb.

I wonder how he does the beat from The Wedge... I haven't seen him play it, but do any of you guys know if he uses an auxiliary hat or if he just does the hi-hat part with his left hand or however he plays that groove?
