just wanted to share this somewhere;
when Ghost Stories came out i really struggled with how to drum to the studio version
because of all the programmed drums/percussion involved
(this was before the live version came out- many of those song versions i liked better for that reason. more alive/less sterile)
anyway- upon hearing the single Everyday Life last week-...i thought, same struggle; drums are weak- rim clocks and couple cymbal swells.
so yesterday i played to it just like i did with Ghost Stories- using Will's (or computer's?) beats as a kind of click track- and playing loudly over them.
It gave so much more life to the latter part of the song, especially- it sounded somewhat more like Army of One from AHFoD
So now- when ever i play it- i will do the same. Less rim clicks- more snare and cymbals. Hopefully Will plays it live that way. Song kinda cries out for it.
