That's me with my kit. I had Ludwig custom make it for me many years ago. It's a five piece with a 26 inch bass, a 10 inch tom-tom and a 16 and 18 inch tom on the floor and I call it The Beast.
I recorded this in my room without miking the drum, so what you're hearing is the sound as it comes off the kit. And that is just me playing alone and nothing has been added.
When a drummer does a solo, it's a very special thing because we spend most of our time keeping a beat and comping behind the lead instrument. It's when we solo that we are allowed to emote and to express our inner selves. I am dedicating this piece to all you gamers and painters who have been of such help to me over these past months.
I have titled it A Wargamer's Serenade and have included as many of your historical periods as I could in the video. There's a middle segment where I solo only on the toms and then it kicks back in as loud as I could make it. That, Francis Lee, is where you'll find The Big Fellow.
Please take five minutes of your time and listen as this means a great deal to me. If you have headphones, put them on and I assure you, you will hear the sound of an army of Celts.
It's Friday folks and another work week is over. So get on out there and suck the marrow out of the bones of life. I know I will.
