Steve Gadd

This Steve Gadd drum solo comes from the Spyro Gyra tune entitled "Conversations", which first appears in 1983 on Spryo Gyra's seventh album, City Kids.

The 16-measure drum solo starts in the middle of the tune, around the 03:33 time mark. The tempo marking is brisk, 155-156 bpm during the solo; the overall tempo throughout the tune varies a bit. I've isolated the drum solo for you to listen to here.

Steve typically uses a 6-piece drumkit (four Tom-Toms), but in this solo he only plays two of the Toms, high and low, which is a real bonus for anyone wanting to work on this solo, in particular those using a 4-pc drumkits.
