BLACK BEAUTY SNARE
This month’s loop, is a half-time groove based on a linear idea I came up with using inverted variations Double Strokes at 115 BPM.
This groove is exciting as I’ve recorded it using my new Black Beauty snare copy by WorldMax, and new A Designs Pacifica preamps on the Overheads.
I’ve been into half-time grooves recently, and this is another example of that. Again, I’ve used space and not played lots of bass drums. And the sound of the snare; it’s musical, clear, snappy and articulate! This Black Beauty snare copy sounds like the real deal. I mean, a Ludwig black brass snare is really pricey, and finding a WorldMax version of it that sounds pretty much the same is awesome!
Jeff Porcaro, John Bonham, Bernard Purdie, Jason McGerr have great half-time shuffles which are very inspiring… This drum beat however, goes a bit the other way being a straight rather than swung groove.
If you’re a drummer and would like the transcription to the groove, download it below.
