Default Re: Mitch Mitchell

I have been hooked on Mitchell lately. I remember playing along with "Fire" when I was a young teenager. I play big drums (26/14/16/18) and have them cranked just like his were. I've been really working on more jazz-type playing (double stroke rolls, more sensitive playing) and having the tight tension on the heads really helps.

I love Mitchell's playing, the sound of his drums and his attitude behind the kit.

Does anyone have an opinion on how he starts "Manic Depression"? I've always thought it was a super-fast single stroke roll but the other day my wife and I were listening to it and it suddenly sounded more like a combination of double stroke hits.
