Should a drummer know (at least something about) how to play African, Indian, etc drums?
His channel is right here (all show him playing traditional percussion instruments) :Thanks, XG65, a few vids would be good.
Agree with ideally would want to play several instruments (sort if play the guitar and flute (badly)...
Hehe about bring broke... I'm not broke but don't have as much time to practice the drum kit as I'd like (full time job+commuting/roll eyes/ so I'm 'time-broke', if that make sense...
That depends on how experienced they are. Someone who really knows instruments knows that drums and percussion cover different skillsets, and they probably wouldn't expect one person to be completely competent in both.Thanks Maxim and Bermuda. Was just curious if people (band leaders at auditions, etc) tend to expect a drummer to know something about a variety of drums (other than the kit)...
It doesn't hurt to know all you can, but be aware that tabla involves a lot more than just thumping the drums. Getting good takes years of discipline, becoming a master takes a lifetime. Djembe is much easier to learn, and much more likely you'd actually use it in real life.From what you are saying, might make sense for me to play around with a tabla or djembe or other drums a bit
Thanks! I enjoyed watching these.His channel is right here (all show him playing traditional percussion instruments) :
And here's a few vids of him on the drum kit :
