ROCKING NASHVILLE SESSIONS: When we went to track drum tracks for our Pure Country Series, one location was the only one even mentioned: Nashville. Sure, everyone knows that, right? But, while in Nashville, we learned a few things that go well beyond country music. We learned the level of musicianship in town is unsurpassed - walk into any club, bar, or honky-tonk and you'll see and hear world-class players on every instrument. We also learned that musicians in Nashville are extremely efficient and productive - when the clock is running, work gets done. We also learned that Nashville is a great rock town as well as other styles you'd never expect from the capital of country music.

We used a timeless classic for a drumkit - the Yamaha Recording Custom drumset -- and dialed in a great, live drum mix in one of the best-sounding (as well as best-looking) drum rooms in town. A well-conditioned API board was brought in to capture the sweetest subtleties of live brush work as well as the thick, punchy country, country-rock, and rock drum tones you've heard on countless country-rock hits. These Rocking Nashville Sessions remain some of our favorite sounding drum tracks to this day.

THE PLANT SESSIONS: Now, this was a helluva room! Recorded at The Plant in Sausalito, CA, we went into the big room to capture drums for The Plant Sessions. And, when we say big, we mean absolutely huge. No exaggeration necessary, this was, without question the biggest recording space we had ever put drums in - it was absolutely massive in width and length as well as height. It easily went up 50'-70'.

But, the sound was totally controlled and workable - it could be as huge as you wanted or as dry and intimate as you needed. It was clear to see why this was the go-to room in the Bay Area when it came to drums, whether it was a soft rock act like Fleetwood Mac or heavier groups like Metallica (when they rocked, that is). Speaking of Metallica, an interesting engineer's story came up while we recorded there.

After loading in and getting set, we just happened to be observing the space and noticed that the walls had a distinct line where one color of blue paint ended and another, slightly different shade of blue began. We weren't sure why such an obvious and noticeable difference in color was on these studio walls, so we asked. Sure enough, the reason became clear. When Metallica recorded Garage, Inc in Studio A, Lars evidently didn't feel the drums were "big enough." So, rather than moving recording to a bigger (not sure if one existed within 500 miles of Sausalito) or different room, what does the band do?

Now, mind you, this is the mid-90's and the band was flush with cash, having ridden the massive wave of airplay, touring, and recorded sales that was the Black album. Well, Metallica put recording on hold and had the roof of The Plant studios raised. By a good 30 feet or more. Right where the two tones of blue paint met was The Plant studios pre- and post-Metallica. So, Lars got the bigger room he wanted and recording proceeded as planned, right? Well, according to our recording engineer, they still wound up flying in samples to get the drums big enough for Lar's liking. All the studio renovation expenses, months of delay in recording, and they still turned to drum samples. Ah, rock and roll delusions of grandeur.

And, here we were recording a few drum loop packs for a few days in rather un-Metallica-like fashion, no-frills and all. A great time, with some great drumming styles captured in these sessions.
