You're lefty , John ? Me too .
I had one of those Signature Yamaha double strainer aluminum snares . Really great drum !!
Dave's accomplishments behind the kit are stunning .
Man, i watched it yesterday. Enjoyed every second of it.
Ps. The snare Dave used on “Mud Sauce” would be an 8” tom (maple custom) he used on Rhythm and Soul album, with snare wire installed on the bottom. (While his main snare being his signature aluminum). I believe the album jacket also shows this information.
This was a really educational interview. Didn't expect such thoughtful comments about timing, styles, grip and so forth. Very open.
And the brush playing, wow. OK, it sounded not very well on his practice pad, somehow like a drunken rattle snake. But his playing was absolutely master class.
Thank you so much for these interview series. So much to learn.
Thanks guys! I really appreciate the kind words.I’m looking forward to listening to this John. I listened to the Keltner and JR episodes last night on my walk (yes, they’re long walks) and just love your style of interviewing. Of course, being a total gear head, I would love some more gear discussion, but hey, that’s me. I do see you and Dave talked gear, so I’m really looking forward to that!
Thank you for providing this invaluable service. Just awesome.
