Thanks man. Keeping in mind they're programmed (pretty sure its still obvious from the sound, I haven't humanized them at all). But yeah...I don't have a particularly great feel for writing drums. If my drummer ever gets around to tweaking them I'll repost and show you what I mean... Every time I lay down the drums for a track to get the song written, I think it sounds pretty cool. Then he gets ahold of it and re-writes the drums and I realize mine sounded like dick cheese.
I have, but not with this material. Had a band in highschool and we played around town a good amount, then years later after I got out of the Corps I filled in on bass in my drummers other band to get them through a couple shows. Right now though I'm working in the Middle East, so this is a project between me & my drummer via the internet.
