cool drummer, pretty solid and nice sounds
but clafalc and Claudio Falconcini seems more than a coincidence to me

Nice stuff man. Very tasty. Just be honest that this is you that's all we ask. Kinda insults our intelligence. Nobody gets away with anything here.

+1 on that.Wow....ego need a little massaging?Why not just be honest, introduce yourself,and ask for a critique of your playing?Resorting to subterfuge not the way to win friends and influence people.;(

Not to mention that this is getting a lot of attention in the General Discussion section of the forum...

And if I'm being completely honest (and not meaning to be tactless), the drumming is mediocre by youtube standards. Sorry.

Ok, first of all yea be honest. 2nd of all, I never understand this. Why do you guys post video's of yourselves playing other bands music. Your not in dream theater, somebody already made up the parts and your just copying them. Whats the point? I don't get that. Why not use your time to come up with your own parts, your own music, or at least a twist on someone elses tune. Or play a cover with your own band, playing to the bands original tracks and posting it just seems so pointless to me. Just my opinion

Oh yea, one more thing. Watch how you say things on this forum. Its a rough crowd. LOL "Sick drummer" I don't think so. Dennis Chambers is a sick drummer, Thomas Lang is a sick drummer, Vinnie is a sick drummer, Carter is a sick drummer, Marco M. is a sick drummer. Even Mike Portnoy is not a sick drummer sorry. Before you use the term sick like us drummers tend to do sometimes ya best put some thought into it. The drummer I posted with Dirty Loops now he is a sick drummer. There are some really SICK drummers out there i'm sure tons I forgot to mention. but this is not sick its medium at best.

Really nice !
But if u really wanna promote yourself
then just do it i guess?
why write all that nonsense(check this guy out )?

and i would disagree with Joe Morris
i guess there is nothing wrong in covering
thats how you learn and become a better drummer
in my opinion
if u dont cover and learn other drummers beats
u wont be creative and when its your chance to play
in a band
u will be shit
just my opinion

Covering is fine. But I think you miss Joe's point. Making a video of it, posting it .... all this under the guise of "hey man, check out this sick drummer". Just another YouTube warrior. "Take a look to this drummer I found on Youtube!" .... right. The cats in a band, Wind Rose .... hey, I'd much rather hear what they do.​
Yeah, covers are great learning tools. But this guy ain't showing anyone "how to" .... there's no learning, or teaching, going on here. Just another "this is my first post" (and probably last ... we see 'em all the time) .... look at me, stroke my ego .... hit and run .... 1100 YouTube hits and a dollar will get you a cup of coffee ....​

I've found a good way to have fun creating your own parts on someone else tune is to search drumless or no drums tunes on soundcloud.com.

I think you may want to reread the forum rules,concerning langauge.I also agree with Harry,that you're missing Joes point.Listening to another artist playing,and then bringing something else of your own to the table,is what He's talking about.Covering a drum part beat for beat is ok,and it can teach you some of what you need to know,but its not creative.

There are lots of guys out there,who are plenty creative,and never learned a drum part note for note.They took from it what the master had to teach,and then made it their own.
