Musically, I'm a product of where I've been, and my journey has been long and twisted. Here are some clips from my favorite "Me" recordings. Try a few; they'll give an idea of what happens when I'm let loose with sticks!!
For obvious reasons, I've chosen clips where the drum parts are an integral part of the mood, and are designed to be noticed. However, I should make it clear that even the most obnoxiously egotistical little voice in my head acknowledges that drums are NOT the featured instrument, most of the time.
The song-clips are in MP3 format, which has become so popular that most computers can play them automatically. If yours doesn't, you can download a free player (WinAmp) HERE.
Just click on Hi Quality or Lo Quality (below each song title) to play the clips (or right-click and select "save as" to download them). Hi Quality (obviously) sounds better, but may take too long if you have a slow internet connection.
If you're a "grit-your-teeth-and-get-it-over-with" type (like me), you can download the whole set in one file. Just right-click on the first link, select "save as", and go knit a sweater.
If you'd rather build a working automobile out of Rice Krispies than sit and wait for files to download, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you a CD.
This song is about a siege, and a hero who'll save the day.
I wanted to set a menacing tone, with a 'lift' at the end.
This was not overdubbed - I used 2 remote cable hi-hats (L&R)
and a 'regular' hi-hat (L).
