The song „Alone Again“ by Ryan Lerman features Aaron Sterling on drums and Larry Goldings on the organ. If you don’t know the original track please check it out. It sounds amazing and it´s a pleasure to listen to these incredible musicians.
It took quite a while this time until I was satisfied with the sound of my drums. That may be due to the fact that I wanted to get as close as possible to the snare drum sound that Aaron Sterling created on the original record. I did not try to find out how Aaron did it or which equipment he used. To me the fun in recreating sounds is to find my own way with the equipment that I have.
