Default Re: Virgil Donati

A great inspiration to me, one I look upon. I know in myself I will never reach that level as I started when I was 12 (compared to him at about 3) but it gives me more determination everyday to practice. This goes for Gavin Harrison too, 2 of my favourite drummers, and very both different.

What got me into Donati was his extroadinary footwork, it's absolutely crazy what he can do overpla patterns with his hands on top.

This is one of my favourite bits I've found, doing inverted doubles with a great groove over it at 0:47
