Default Back to my roots :)

Power trio tub thumping that is, C/W single pedal rock fills = loving it!

Anyone guess the original song?

Simple simple stuff Abe, but it's actually how I used to earn my living post ice age ;) Strangely, since coming back to playing, this is the first time I've actually knocked out a few rock groove songs. I love this bass drum lead kinda vibe. I suppose, underneath all the desire to be a good rounded player, this is actually me.

Yes, the original's a bit wimpy. This version is nearer Gun's than Cameo's. Anyhow, we're just throwing a few "quick win" power trio type numbers together in rehearsal so we can drop them into a second set that needs to keep bouncing.

Deliberate unashamed thumping is such a good thing to do Mary. It cleanses the soul :)

Great stuff, man. I just wish there was more of it. The song is vaguely familiar to me, but I can't place it, even though there are two clues. Nice solid beat and footwork.

Thank you. We just pulled this out of the bag at practice. Still that dead room issue though :(

More of it - ah yes. The guys asked me to record the first tries of this song. I plugged the Zoom into the wall socket & placed it on top of my cases. What I didn't realise is the socket wasn't working, so the Zoom relied on what was left of it's batteries, & promptly died after a minute or so :(

Thanks. Stripped down & simple usually works out well :)

Yes Guys, Cameo "Word Up" but with more balls (we progress to a pretty chunky guitar solo and a nice alternate 8ths on/off the bell groove plus a fairly challenging (at least, for me) bass drum pattern).

Original https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_fGgNs_PcM

Wow. You guys play Cameo? Nice groove on that one Andy. I seriously think you need a nice phat sounding snare though! I know you have one..... ;)

Good stuff! Your version actually reminded me more of Korn's version than the original. I guess in reality it sits somewhere in between the two.



I'd love to hear it with a looser and fatter snare sound, but that's just me :-)

Yes, for this song - certainly. Cameo's a bit of a stretch for us, but we've turned it into a rock track, so it should sit just fine late second set :)

+ 1 from Bo too on the snare. Our version of this tune is pretty stripped down & simplified. We don't include our keyboards in this either. We feel it's better as a straight guitar rocker.

Liking that quarter note pattern on the hi hat Andy. The time feel sits nicely. Nice groove Andy. Put me down for wanting a fatter snare tone for this song.

Also, you should be singing a song or 2. Why is it when English dudes sing, their accent disappears?

Thanks Henri. Of course, this is just a short snippet of a first jam of the track. It needs refining somewhat, but yes, I'm a fan of a simple top end of the kit with driving 2 bar bass drum patterns. That's the very premise of this thread, I don't get to do that nearly often enough, & it's the one thing I used to be fairly well known for.

I'm surprised nobody's picked up on the single pedal fills. I use a hihat stomp in a quad pattern. Clean & effective.

Thanks Larry, & yes, point taken on the fat snare deal. Seems like I'll have to have two snares with me on gigs. This is the ultra dead practice room I despair over, so my snare is as dry as hell :(

I'm hoping that's English slang for giving you a hard time. Across the pond we call it "ball busting". The concept is the same but doesn't leave us with weird thoughts.

Great playing Andy. That ride is a bit pingy for my liking but I'll bet it really cuts through the mix.

Hahaha, yes, sorry for leaving you with that image ;)

This ride is fairly pingy. It's why I use it for live rock shows. (not especially in this number) the band produces a big full sound, so I need something with definition. That said, this is that super dry rehearsal room I've been bitching about recently, plus I'm playing right at the base of the bell.

Two comments I frequently receive here are in relation to my ride pingyness, & the need for a lower tuned/fatter snare. I agree with both, but I only get those comments here, never at gigs. Also, the band has a different opinion. Even in melodic numbers, they like the snare crack & a defined ride. I tried swapping both out a few gigs back without telling them, & boy did I suffer complaints after the first set. I was forced to revert back to my default. Guess I need two rides & two snares on the kit, then everyone's happy :)
