Gotta love a cat with acoustic and V-Drums..."Hmmm, what do I feel like playing today?" Nice grooves...that Smitty tune had to take a long time to get down like that. Would be torture for me personally...mad respect! I dig that phase of Smith, but those verbal "Daggy diggy dahhhs" drives me nutzzzso.
And this is PART 2 of some improvised grooves I did some weeks ago (PART 1 opened this topic) The thing is like the part 1: One hour of improvised grooves (only drums), recorded them to a click (various tempos) without any backing tracks and then I programmed some loops over them, with no much backing tracks, just to give some context to the grooves. I put some Animal Rights oriented names to the grooves. I am transcribing them right now for future use. I hope you like it.
Juan...everything about these videos work bro...love the drum cam angle, look and sound! Drums really sound great. Playing is smoooooth...silky smooth. Seems you spend a good amount of time within the hats and snare dynamics @2:20 is a nice feel!
Thanks Pocket Player, Yes, dynamics !! I´m really interested in them, combined with a "strong" backbeat, applying it to my main musical context (pop, rock, funk...) And that is what I recorded on those two videos, some examples for using with students.
