JR admits doin overdubs on Ain’t Nobody

Look, for a guy like me who gets a bit obsessed with stuff like that moments like the one on the 21.00 mark of the following seminar are MIND BLOWING.

I’ve spent months trying to play the Ain’t Nobody groove over the studio version and it was always too fast for me to make the hihat part sound right during the chorus. Now, over this process I’ve learned a million stuff concerning 80s pop drumming and dance music in general. But I’ve never got down the groove 100%.

Now, I know the truth. JR is not any less of a good drummer to me now. To be honest overdubbing a pattern like that is a smart move. I mean, that’s actually how drum machines work in a nutshell. And this beat sounds like drum-machine candy with real drum sounds.

I ‘ll probably keep trying to get the groove down though.
