You have anymore Gergo licks? I'm sure that's not the only one. One gets giggity giggity when a world class drummer is playing your drums in your 7X7 box drum room! and record cause Gergo is cool with it. Steve your vids are my favorite cause they are explained with clarity and detail. Broken down so any level can relate. You would be a great teacher at MI. In fact you should run the department!

Dave released a play-along track for this tune from the last record. I really like it so I gave it a try. Took a few weekends to get a take a I liked.

Excellent playing Steve. You ever look into playing at Alva's in San Pedro with your band? Mix is great

These drums sound AMAZING...that floor tom sings deeply warm!

Curious if you need to be in blushda mood or working on it
to throw it in when playing with band? Last year, did you
use this much or variations? When I am working on something
I tend to want to throw it in...so I will really strip this down
to use it in a more pop setting...like Gary's hat use. I really
like the 16th phrasing, but your intro blushda madness was
beast mode worthy...love how you always stay on topic without
the need to go *Jim Carrey like so many others making vids.
* Liar, Liar time period.
