After 3 days and almost 30 takes, I give up and humbly submit this video of me drumming to Outernational‘s Eyes on Fire.
If you put on your headphones and listen to the left ear, you’ll hear more of me and less of the recording. These guys have been working with Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine) and Chad Smith (of Red Hot Chili Peppers) and are likely to go places, I think.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
UPDATE (March 12, 2010):
- According to a helpful commenter on YouTube, the drumming on this track was done by Gil Sharone (most famously of The Dillinger Escape Plan).
- I now see that I never properly synced up the drumming in my video with the audio of the studio track. I don’t have the source video to edit anymore, so I will remain forever playing a few milliseconds ahead of the beat. You win this round Gil Sharone.
