Re: Chad Smith
I was so glad to see a post about Chad Smith. He is one of my favorite drummers. Okay maybe he's not a Bonham or a Powell in rock, or a Garibaldi in funk, but he's got that flow, and grooviness when he plays that just makes him so great.. I have his his DVD "Red Hot Rythm Method" and its absolutely hillarious, but also contains pretty sick drumming. He's got style when he plays, and it shows in the diversity of beats.
And aslo like someone mentioned, try his signature snare... I wanna second the fact that it's super cheap, but very cutting edge sound, and great punch... has a wide range of tuning too.. I dont think i'll be changing snares for a while...
