Re: London Drum Show MainStage tickets on sale now - Heads up!!

Re: London Drum Show MainStage tickets on sale now - Heads up!!

I'd decided not to go as last time (I think it was around 3 years ago I went) didn't know about the whole extra-tickets-needed thing and missed the drummers I wanted to catch. But actually if it's...

Re: Philly Joe Phriday

I've heard about this - looks amazing, wonder if I can get one somehow in the UK. Is it all transcriptions by the same person? I've heard Ralph Peterson gets his Berklee students to do a few Philly...

Re: Billy Cobham

Unfortunately not even close, but I tried to learn the head by ear and I did write out that cool triplet fill during the head if that's of any interest. It's kind of hard to hear but I think it's...

Hi Natdrums, hope the project is going well.

Re: Learning music vs practicing exercises

Yeah the stuff that I've been missing practicing is probably not as directly applicable as learning tunes, but still important and I miss having a routine sometimes.
