Early Start Today

Morning World.

Had a very early start this morning (for me anyway). Was at up at 6 and at the Gym for 6:30. Feel nice and refreshed for the day ahead though.

So about my “Thriller” Cover, Managed a couple more plays through last night, and its really starting to come together. I’m going to have a couple more plays through tonight. Then ill be hoping to get it recorded on Saturday the 11th. (using my new mic set-up. Which i will gointo more detail in a later post)

All my fills and beats for this have so far been add lib, and nothing has been penned. So its very spontaneous and that’s the way I will be recording it. one run through and what ever happens, happens. (inc mistakes :-S)

That’s why I’m playing it a few times through to gauge the overall feel of the song.

About ajbennettdrums

I have been playing drums for over 20 years now and currently have over 9 years of teaching experience. I am comfortable playing all styles and am a proficient sight reader of music. I started playing drums at the tender age of 7 and I vividly remember exactly what it was that got me into drumming. One Sunday afternoon I was watching a documentary on classic 80’s bands, equipped with huge Drum Kits taking up most of the stage. I then proceeded to empty out a tonne of boxes in my room, cut holes in them and sticky-tape bits together to create my first drum kit (using pencils as sticks). At that point, my dad thought it would be a good idea to send me off for Drum Lessons and from that moment on I have never looked back.
