Default Re: Grant Collins

My store just hosted a clinic with him tonight. Nicest dude you could ever meet.

His level of independence is out of this world. He demonstrated a fairly basic exercise he uses, where he plays 2 against 3 against 4 against 5 on each limb, and then takes it a step further and plays 2 against 3 against 5 against 7.

He also did about half an hour on breaking down a basic samba groove: adding other rhythms on one limb, playing the groove between different limbs (hands playing what the feet are etc..), using it in a rock context and finally as a bombastic fill. The solo he played was very tasty as well, technically outstanding but also very groovy.

I'll put some pictures up when I'm finished going through them all.
