Drum Tracks!

Skip to the bottom

  • @zecoop  Jan 29


    In past years I have offered complete drum tracks that I record on my drum kit. I am planning on doing this again and will make them available for anyone to use, straight, or remixed - however you want. They are real drums, not midi and will not be quantized, although I will be playing along to a click track and will provide the bpm (approximate, lol).

    If you do end up writing something with them, please do NOT mark me as a collaborator, but please DO tag the song with #zecoopdrums so I can find them. It's really fun hearing all the different ways people interpret them.

    I'm hoping to record them in the next couple of days, prior to FAWM. πŸ˜€

  • @darkmantle  Jan 29

    I still have one your files from 2 years ago. Never did use it. Might try to use one this year.

  • @resonance  Jan 29

    @zecoop Nice ! That's very cool of you. I'll definitely use some of your drum tracks - they might be cut and mangled when I'm finished, but...

    Cheers !

  • @metalfoot  Jan 29

    I may just use the zecoopdrums!

  • @heuristicsinc  Jan 29

    @zecoop s drums are great, I've used them on a few songs in past FAWMs. I will look forward to it again!

  • @w1n  Jan 29

    @zecoop looking forward to grabbing some drum tracks, had luck with making songs out of tracks you've shared earlier.

  • @kovbleu  Jan 29

    Sweeeeet. <3

  • @tootoobee  Jan 29

    cooool πŸ˜€

  • @keithcuts Jan 29

    Very cool

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Jan 29

    @zecoop Love this! I might offer a few measures of drums as well. I'm doing the "remix this track" thing, so, I could probably just cut out some drums that can be cut and paste over and over again. πŸ˜€

  • @roddy  Jan 29

    Thanks for this. I used one of your drum tracks in the past. The playing and the sound quality were both excellent.

  • @roadreg Jan 29

    Thank you! I'm commenting here so I don't forget πŸ˜€

  • @spikedirection  Jan 30

    You absolute hero! Thanks for doing this.

  • @frenchcricket  Jan 30

    Can you do any breaks? πŸ˜€

  • @airbagtester  Jan 30

    I am all ears!

  • @scottlake  Jan 30

    Thank you in advance.

  • @amusia Jan 30

    Ooh, thank you for offering this! I will try to make use of them!

  • @zecoop  Feb 1

    Be sure to wait until midnight, but here are the three drum songs I recorded tonight! I hope you all have fun with them...

    Song 1 (120bpm)

    Song 2 (120bpm)

    Song 3 (140bpm)

    If you want WAV files, email me at zecoop at yahoo dot com and I can wetransfer them to you. πŸ˜€

    Remember, please do not mark me as a collaborator on your songs, just tag it with #zecoopdrums

  • @tseaver  Feb 1

    Thanks, @zecoop, them're some fine grooves!

  • @zecoop  Feb 1

    Just a reminder... I recorded these live on my 1973 Ludwig drumset and I am really not a drummer, lol. I recorded them with a click of the designated speed going, but may have deviated here and there, as I was making up the songs as I went, and I am a bass player. πŸ˜€

    If you overlay a click of the speed indicated and line it up with the intro clicks, you'll see.

    Have fun. Do whatever you want. If you want individual drum mic tracks, I may be able to send them to you, if you, but no promises. FAWM is hectic. E-mail me if you want something specific to work with. πŸ˜€

  • @toms  Feb 1

    YES πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 1

    Bump since FAWM has started... πŸ˜€

    Three free drum tracks to write anything you want with (links are up about four posts). Use them whole, chop them up, sample, do whatever. Tag songs with #zecoopdrums

  • @sheilerk  Feb 1

    I just think this is too cool, and such a nice thing for you to do!

  • @vomvorton  Feb 1

    Sounding good @zecoop ! I'd love to hear @mosley have a go at that super-surfy 140bpm track... will definitely try to do something with one (or more) of these!

  • @tobermory  Feb 4

    Oh wow - @vomvorton just hooked me up with this thread as this year I can't play drums live. Thanks for the assist, kind stranger!

  • @lvgd09  Feb 4

    Cool, I'll see what I can come up with. Thanks!

  • @godsmonkey  Feb 5

    Did a quick one this evening.


  • @heuristicsinc  Feb 5

    I recorded a few tracks with the surfy one last night... needs something more...

  • @godsmonkey  Feb 5

    And another in the same vein, but heavier:


  • @heuristicsinc  Feb 6

    I finished! Here it is: https://fawm.org/songs/91511/
    Darker than you might expect.

  • @oblivionratula  Feb 6

    Used the 2nd cut in my #FakeIt Challenge track. Thanks for that!

  • @zecoop  Feb 6

    These are some awesome tracks - You all are amazing! My company blocks files.fawmers but I listened to all the rest. I'll check out the others at home. So good... Glad to hear all the different things you come up with!

    Just so the link is handy, here's all the songs using these drum tracks.

  • @jessi14  Feb 6

    I had so much fun with your drum tracks two years ago.

  • @godsmonkey  Feb 6


    This one uses Chapman Stick

  • @zecoop  Feb 7

    Thank you @godsmonkey !!!! What a killer song. A real powerhouse. πŸ˜€

  • @pcob1993  Feb 7

    I'd love to try it thanks... how do I get one ???

  • @zecoop  Feb 7

    @pcob1993 - the links to download them are about halfway up above. There are three songs. Right click on the links and save the MP3 to your computer, then do whatever you want with them. πŸ˜€

  • @kovbleu  Feb 7

    THANKS COOP!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3
    Here's what I did with your drum track.


  • @godsmonkey  Feb 7


    I'm finding a ton of inspiration from those 10 minutes of drumming you posted. I could probably do 14 songs just off those three tracks.

    In fact, I would love to hear a compilation of the best of #zecoopdrums!

  • @zecoop  Feb 7

    Thanks a ton @godsmonkey !! I had fun writing those this year and am hoping to do songs myself with them. Be sure to check out all of the songs that use them with #zecoopdrums - there is a TON of variety and imagination!

    @kovbleu - I loved that! I love hearing different styles written to drums that (in my mind) have a certain style in mind.

  • @saumera  Feb 8

    @zecoop hey man thanks so much for doing this! Do you happen to have any dry versions? (I'm assuming that's reverb added in post). If not, no big deal, but either way I'm gonna come bug ya for some WAVs

  • @w1n  Feb 17

    Here's the first of my two songs based on the drums you shared.


  • @heuristicsinc  Feb 20

    I did another one!
    Not as dark, more mellow than the last one.

  • @sailingmagpie  Feb 24

    @zecoop Thanks so much for letting us use these excellent drum tracks!

    Here's my filthy garage rock tune using one of them -


  • @auditasum Feb 25

    Your drums make up most of this song, so thank you!


  • @zecoop  Feb 25

    @auditasum - Gonna comment on the actual song too, but man was that cool - I see Laurie Anderson is on your list too, so cheers for that!!! I thought the spoken word parts were awesome and that repeated title phrase was sweet! Loved it. πŸ˜€

  • @leomozi  Feb 28

    Here’s mine for #2. Thanks to @zecoop! I’m looking forward to hearing the other pieces in this threadβ€” didn’t want to influence my writing my listening to them first.

  • @zecoop  Mar 1

    For my last song of FAWM I used one of the drum tracks from this year... It had to be the surf one, although I'll probably end up writing songs for the other two as well. You all were amazing!! So many way to use the same tracks, from songs that were just natural fits to really inventive and cool ways of changing them or adapting different styles of music. Cheers to you all... πŸ˜€

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Mar 1

    Ha! I failed so hard this year to share drums. Thanks @zecoop for doing that! So cool! Especially people who'd like to have some REAL sounds in their recording but don't play drums (or can't play in their flats/apartments).
