Switchfoot Float Drum Cover – Mapex Saturn III and sE Electronics V Pack Arena

This one is pretty laid back. I didn’t practice it much as I mostly just wanted to play the chorus with that 7/4 rocking beat. So the other parts are a bit weak or experimental. I do like what I played at about the 2:24 mark on the ride. I forget sometimes how good the bell sounds on that thing. The drums are up in the mix as I like to hear them when I do covers of songs (most of the time)

Also, I set my main camera up when it was set to HD, and then remotely flipped it to 4k. When I did that, it cut my head off but I couldn’t tell from my phone screen lol. So that’s why my head is cut off in the front shots.

Software: Logic Pro
Interface: Soundcraft Signature 12 MTK and Behringer UMC 202HD (for the overheads)
