Slow pacer around sublime guitar phrase loop

Added 2010-09-14 07:18:34

By now we're about two hours into our evening Upstairs At The Ritzy in Brixon on 25 May 2010. The magic here is clearly Mike's sublime guitar phrase, even though he's not actually playing it by now, it's Os having looped it from a few minutes before. Though it sets up the whole track, by the second half it's gone, and we're left with a stripped down descent with Nick enjoying his slow funk, me keeping it sparse and Mike graduating from rough to smooth. For the first time I'm noticing my two different bass drum sounds, between the right foot and the bottom left hand corner of the SPD-S, one with short sustain and one with longer. Mixing them around here works really well.
