Okay, wanted to open up a discussion about the drums on this (AMAZING) tune.
John Frusciante - Expre’act
John Frusciante is an incredible musican and all round safe dude! One of my all time favourites.
Anyway, in this song there are these very staggery swingy drums that seem to slow down and speed up yet fully remain in time. I can’t quite work out how to replicate that effect.
Here is what I know about the dude himself and his workflow, I know that this was around the time he was using renoise alot but I am not a renoise user and so know very little about it. Would using a tracker make this easier? Its almost like each individual hit is being swung bit really extremely and separate from one another.
Other than renoise I know he is a big analog guy. Lots and lots of modular and has been known to have a hardware only approach when he is under the name “trickfinger” If I remember that was all done using only 3 303s and 3 909s being sequenced. Any help with this would be awesome as I think its a great drum technique.
Many thanks and look forward to what people have to say!
