Default Re: Steve Smith

There was this overlapped syncopated pattern he played on his '86 instructional video that I transcribed and used to be able to play. However, I lost the notes and can't find the video anywhere, even YouTube.

It was do damn cool and was a real mindbender...

DuhDuh(rest)Duh(rest)DuhDuh...etc with the foot and then you overlap the same pattern on top of it with the snare, starting with the "e" of the bar.

Crazy stuff...

Here's some vintage Steve. He just has such a distinct style.
