More on click tracks …

I’ve just been astounded by the number of and quality of the comments that I’ve received on my recent ‘searching for click track’ posts. I’ve learned a lot about modern music production, drumming, the power of Waxy, Slashdot, Reddit, Stumbleupon, Metafilter and BoingBoing and a bit more about python. I was surprised and heartened by the fact that even those who thought I was wrong, or thought that my analysis was off beat (snicker),  offered their criticism in a very civil fashion – is this really the Internet?

Many have suggested other drummers to analyze and I’ve taken a quick look at some but I haven’t had time to do anything (I’ve got this SXSW talk to prepare, plus my regular job to do as well, sigh). Luckily enough, some others have already started to do some analyses. I shall try to post the analysis that people add to the comments or send to me here, so we can build a nice directory of click plots for various drummers.
