Damn, he's good! :D Awesome stuff... not that I'll be rushing out to get one any time soon :shock: somewhat eyewatering price, but I guess for that much awesomeness... I wonder if you get a free Blunders with every purchase? :D

Blunders always manages to do the "now he's lost count... no wait, he's still on!" Confusing the rest of us primitive thinking folks. :D

Yes, it's a peculiar thing that...sometimes it sounds right and other times it can jar a bit....bang on in terms of fitting together, just not easy to listen to sometimes.

If you go back to one of the earlier threads, I raised this issue and Craig said it was all entirely deliberate. Which I'm absolutely sure it is; he's a talented bugger  ;)

Oh absolutely. Not suggesting it is not deliberate, just saying that sometimes it hits you as "wow, that's clever", then other times it is more "huh? (rewind) jeez, that's clever".
I prefer the first one. :)

Indeed he was "out" too long to be considered an intentional going out of beat. He lost it at that moment, IMHO :D And if it was intentional, it definitely didn't sound good to me in that context...


A talented drummer otherwise :)

It'd be interesting to see Mr Blundell do a drum workout to King Crimson's Frame By Frame - lots of interweaving time things going on there with the main riff.  It could be done in Somerset too and then it could be Frome by Frome...(groan)  :lol:

Just got my latest Andertons email and here is Craig playing a different kit - the HD-3

http://youtu.be/h9C_jYFNKCM

The play-along track at the end sounds more like Dr Oktopus(? - what's the track if you are reading this Craig?) than Frost* - starts at about 13:18.  Shows what fun live drumming can be to electronics though!

I'm hoping for some BLM and a proper jazz demonstration when he comes to do a clinic here in Oslo early next month. :D
