Did you play the bongos on 'Billy The Kid Strikes Back'? That bongo breakdown is pretty badass ott..it just sounds sooo natural and swingy but still so accurate..any tips for utilizing bongos as such? They sound so crisp.
I played all of the percussion on that song, bongos, congas, djembe, and what you hear in the breakdown which is a darbuka. They were all recorded with the cheapest, nastiest microphone, through a really basic mic preamp on an old vocoder I own, in the living room of a small house in the south-west of England.
I love recording percussion, it's one of my favourite parts of the whole process. Glad you like it!
