Here's the original master track minus drums of this great 1978 Earth, Wind and Fire song for anyone that wishes to practise along to it. Under that is my own little interpretation of it, playing to that same master track minus drums. :)

Nice! Really like the sound of your hi-hat cymbals. What series UFiP and size?

Cheers ludwig402. They're 13" and are called Class series hi-hats. I've had them for many years. Fairly weighty cymbals, with each cymbal weight marked in grams. Very articulate which I like, although my recording is making thrm sound a bit too sibilant.

Great drumming. You were able to stay with that little speeding up after first chorus.

Clearly some sophisticated, well schooled drumming, a real pleasure to watch. I agree with Ludwig402, those 13" UFIP hats sound great.

Thanks very much guys :) That splash, oh, I love it to bits, it's my favourite, a Sabian 10" HHX Evolution. It's quite thin and very fast with a little bit of trashiness to it.

LOVE the fill at 1:52.
Ah yeah, that's similar to those classic fills you often hear at the beginning of Motown records. It's a 6 stroke roll plus some strokes tagged onto the end. First stroke is 1st tom, last stroke is 2nd tom and everything in between is snare.
