That's a nice looking, and sounding kit. As well as some really good playing also. While you were tracking, did you have the rest of the band in your phones? Or were you just playing your parts by yourself?

I was playing to the track in my in ear phones. When the music is added in, it sounds really funky and loose and gives what was a somewhat mechanical feeling track the squish that it needed. Sometimes you gotta lay down time that is hard like bone, and sometimes you're playing cartilage and adding cushion.

The original example drum part sent to me had a straight 4/4 beat over the top of the 7/8-9/8 part. I wasn't feeling that so I played a "static" bell pattern across the time while moving around the subdivisions underneath.

The section where it gets dynamic and sketchy with the ride cymbal, kick and snare is a bass solo. I pretty much outlined rhythmically what he was doing. There's two drum breaks in the tune; one in the middle and one at the very end. There's unison hits with the band that I'm playing dead on and outlining others.

This was a fun tune to learn and play. I'll let you all know when it's available in its finished form.

Great playing, & nice movement in the drum part. Always difficult to judge the processing without the drums sitting in the track. On their own, they sound fairly compressed, especially the toms. Looking forward to hearing the finished track, when hopefully the processing choices will make sense after mastering.
