If you were to judge by my posts on here, you wouldn’t have realized that last week I failed in my attempts to record a drum cover per week, letting a week slide without one. However, I posted a “better late than never” cover of one of my favorite songs, John Butler Trio’s “Close To You”.
I have to admit I cheated on this one. I used to cover this song when I was playing with Ken and the Action Figures, so my prep time was cut down quite a bit. While this song isn’t the most technical one out there, it features a solid groove and an awesome solo section. It’s songs like this that have made Nicky Bomba one of my favorite drummers. I have a fond appreciation for the sounds that he’s able to generate from his kit.
After I finished recording this cover, I played around with another JBT song. Something tells me that you may see another cover from this band soon.
As always, I’d love any feedback.
