So my band @apageunturned released a new single today titled “Reflection”. It’s very different and experimental from what we usually come up with but we don’t really care. Little back story; this song was written in 15 minutes. We were at our rehearsal space in North Hollywood all warming up and getting ready to run the set. Damon started playing the intro bass line, just messing around with chords. I thought it sounded rad so I started playing a tom groove along with him. He loved it and we both agreed it gave us a blink-182 “Untitled” album feel. Damon threw down the bass and grabbed a guitar to show Yoshi what he had in mind. Yoshi was quick to chime in with a beautiful arpeggio and we just kept playing. Damon sang some freestyle lyrics and the word “reflection” really seemed to stick. We looped it for about 15 minutes straight and after that we had the structure down for the song. It wasn’t intentional but the magic was flowing and we didn’t want that to stop. For the next 4 hours or so we just worked on that song. We had a clear vision of what we wanted it to sound like, so once we got in the studio we went all out. Adding in as many little things as we could. This is my favorite song we have ever written and I hope you all love it as much as we do. Gives me chills listening to it knowing we wrote this together. Let us know what you think in the comments below👇🏻 Link to the song is in my bio. Sorry for the novel, enjoy.
This new SJC Element aluminum snare is awesome and got here just in time for my birthday! Looks so good I gave it a little photo shoot! Sounds even better- can't wait to hear it behind the kit. Thanks SJC! #sjcdrums#sjcfamily#drumnerd
#fridayfills will return properly in the new year... until then... one last repost of a fill from a few months ago... my most viewed fill so far!
#repost Friday Fills! Sticking is (R+L) rlrKK (R+K) L KK (R+L). The first hit can be a flam or just both hands together, followed by a four stroke ruff (last stroke as a kick) and from there, all strokes are played as quaver triplets. Give it a go and let me know what you think below! 👇🏻👍🏻👊🏻
