Here's the sixth session vid for Nick J's 'Public Display of Infection' series. One of the hardest aspects of nailing this tune was the repeated bursts on the ride cymbal during the verse riffs, in keeping them consistent in both dynamics and rhythm. Although it may appear that I'm utilizing more of a French grip/finger control, each stroke is driven by the wrist - a testament to the merits of developing such a technique, as the ride sound is loud and distinct in the mix. This was tracked in May of last year.

Notes:
1:12 - 1:15, 2:00 - 2:03 - hats are semi-open
1:24 - 1:26, 3:03 - 3:06 - brief metric modulation
1:49 - 1:51, 3:35 - 3:37 - china/china+snare complement the guitar
2:03 - 2:04, 3:59 - 4:01 - cool fill-ins
2:24 - 2:43 - part of the bridge is comprised of what I like to call a 'tease groove', since the kick doesn't lock in completely with the bass (no downbeats, only the third triplet partial) within the first two bars but does so for the last two
2:50 - 2:54 - hats are slowly opened to give a push into the subsequent 'crash-heavy' section
3:49 - 3:51 - crash melody complements the guitar
