My god, these guys are marathon athletes! Eric has got some quick, tasteful chops. I enjoyed the video. Thank you.McPherson is one of *the* baddest drummers walking the planet.
He's talking [summarily] about Dawson's approach to Sycopation. No, not playing the ride pattern on all four limbs - just a constant ride pattern, and *lightly* (feathering) playing quarters on the bass drum while using the other arm to play the page on the snare (or move it around the kit).
Seriously - one of *the* dudes out there. I've posted this video here a few times:
he's got a ton of stuff on there now - go check him out.
""quarters on the bass drum while using the other arm to play""
If your saying he is feathering with a stick, that didn't even enter my mind. Sometimes I have to remember, "out of the box!"
Thanks for replying and I'll look for Dawson. Sounds interesting.
