Just Ripe

By Saucey-dough on February 9, 2020 8:15 pm

I received a percussion shaker set for Christmas this past year. The set happens to be in the form of various fruits. As I opened the gift, one of the first things I said was "I'm going to write a song one day only using these." That dream came true this week. Enjoy.

Damn this is fuckin cool as hell.  True example of how produced drums will never amount to the sound of a human playing, especially in those snare rolls and Tom fills.  I didn’t understand the title until halfway thru and reading your description.  Got a good laugh out of me on that one.  I can’t say much other than this makes me so happy you did this.  I love the idea so much.

When the whistle blew I was like "Oh my god, whats happening now!!?"

Awesome dude, there's so much going on in this, its cool as shit.  COol idea for a track this week for sure.

Haha thanks man! I do take pride in the drums obviously. Technology is crazy now a days with how realistic you can make midi kits sound. I take that as a compliment  that you can hear that "human touch." I am not dissing midi kits. I am even looking into drum plug ins to further advance my V Drums for that big heavy metal feel. Thanks for listening.

FYI - Other track titles that didnt make the cut - "The Fruit Salad" "Its Peanut Butter Jelly Time"

Thanks! I really thought about adding bass, maybe even a few other instruments, and decided not too. I wanted the percussion and drums to be the star of the show. Any other instruments would of ended up making it a full production. It was the drums time to shine!
