I want to hold your hand – Backing Tracks
This is one of my favourite early Beatles songs, and apart from a steady back beat, it features a few interesting fills, so I decided to make this my first drum track made in BFD3, which I just purchased.
Tempo: 131 bpm (4/4)
Kick: Gretsch Purple Kick
Snare: DLX Sonor Snare
Hi-hat: Paiste Signature Hihat
Hi Tom: DLX Backyard Tom Hi
Mid Tom: DLX Sonor Tom Mid (-2.52 semitones)
Crash 1: Bosphorus Crash 16 Stick
Cymbal 1: Bosphorus China 20 Stick
The song contains 13 distinct grooves, but some of them are variations and some only appear once. Every note has been ‘personalised’ to create variation, and I have used 30% AMG (randomizing loudness and tonal variation) to humanise it even more.
I added a bass track and this is the mix-down. The B-part sounds a bit odd when there are no other instruments or vocals, but it should be relatively close to the original.
