Default Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)


26 years old, from the Bronx NY, Shariq Tucker began playing drums at the age of 3. His father saw that he had the potential and the love for drums and cultivated it. He enrolled into a music school called The Boys Club of NY where his music teacher Richard Harrison broadened him with many different styles. Shariq has played with gospel recording artist Jason Nelson, guitarist Michael "funkadelic kidd" Hampton, R&B artist Travis McClung, Alicia Keys, swizz beats, and R. Kelly. He was also the Guitar Center Drum Off 2014 Champion.
Shariq is currently the live drummer of the Stanley Clarke Band.

Check out some of his best videos:

Sharp memory you have Merlin..!

And btw, completely off-topic, but check out Black Midi when you have the chance, they are from your city and maybe they play somewhere near soon..

In my opinion very worthwhile to visit..

Oh yeah, I already checked them out and replied to you in the New Musical Discovery thread in the Off Topic Lounge a few days ago. Very good band, excellent drummer. They're definitely doing something unique. But not really my thing. I think it's young music aimed at mostly 20 to 30 year olds tbh.

"Prodigy" and "young" are very flexible/subjective terms I guess. He's a good player, but doesn't stand out much to me from other busy gospel-ey players. Be nice if some real music was linked too instead of a list of solos. I probably missed some of the good stuff cause my patience for drum solos is pretty low.

1)He's a prodigy in my opinion, for a lack of a better term
2)If a 26 years old guy is not young.....
3)He's not a gospel drummer

A better term would be "pretty good drummer".

Typically when people use the term "prodigy" they're referencing someone very young with capabilities that far exceed the abilities/understandings of others in the age range. This guy is just a very good drummer, and lots of others in that age range can play like that.

I said "gospelly" because that's the style of busy burst-y playing he's doing in the linked videos. Especially in a vacuum with no musical context, that's what it reminded me of.

I do think he's amazing and enjoy watching his playing. Could you listen to him on a record and tell him apart from other Church style drummers (or any drummers) like you could tell Gadd from Bonham from Weckl? Not a chance. By the way, his full name is actually Shariq Guidry Pridgen Coleman Spears Moore Randolph Royster Tucker.

He certainly can't endorse the head brand he is playing in the first Zildjian video.

With drummers i am anyway rarely very impressed anymore about 'that new guy that everyone should hear'..

Like, regarding technique, everything is just not evolving that much anymore since Colaiuta or Donati or Mayer and like has been said before, all of those new Gospel guys kinda sound the same..

To my ears they also sound mostly without any 'depth', if that makes sense..

Like, no listening experience that goes behind the technique..

Everything just kinda stays on the surface, perfect played, a technique that i can not reach in 10 years, but emotionally leaves me completely cold..

Can also just be a personal-taste-thing, since for example with Morgan Simpson from the before mentioned Black Midi, especially in that band setting, i actually was having that feeling again after i saw them play an hour..

From super soft to extremely explosive with an expressive way of playing that i rarely see with those new guys that each time show up..

But hey, who am i to disagree with Stanley Clarke on this..lol..

Actually, just checked some videos of him playing with Stanley Clarke and those impressed me more than the 'typical' NAMM stuff that has been posted here..With those i always get bored pretty quick..

As far as i know he's only a touring drummer at the moment, but i know what you mean and i can't argue with your point.

If you are under 30 and you play for Stanley Clarke you're not just a pretty good drummer, a pretty good drummer play for pop acts like Adele or Beyonce, not with someone like Clarke. "Lots of others in that age range can play like that", can you tell me 3-4 names?

I did also say "very good drummer" if that makes you feel any better. He's great, in fact, but I can't go to any type of prodigy label.

What makes him stand out from the other busy gospel players to you?

Why do you think that should make me feel better? I don't know why you need to be so provocative...

Like i've said before, he's not a gospel player. Shariq is much more original and creative than most of the drummers of his age, he's not all about speed and chops.

P.s. i still waiting to know the names of the lots of others in his age range that can play like him...

Because it seemed to offend you that we weren't all so enamored by this guy as you. He's a good drummer, but I clicked around the links you left and simply didn't see anything indicative of a prodigy. Just a seasoned drummer who's put in the time to get fast and have lots of licks. As mentioned, I have no idea how actually creative he might be in a musical context because I haven't seen music yet. Just gospel style burst-y solos.

Quote:

You know I'm referring to a style of playing and not anything to actually do with church or "the gospel" necessarily, right? I don't know why it's so hard for you to accept that his style is quite gospelly, but at least in this set of videos, everything I saw fits that description to me. Why does it matter?

Quote:

If you say so. I'm still curious why you think that specifically though. Honestly, not trying to troll you, he sounds like most of the kids who grew up aspiring to be gospel style drummers. He's not crazy creative like someone in the range of say Benny Greb, and he's not doing crazy complicated stuff like some of the "prog" guys get into. Tell us what you think is so cool about this guys playing? Why does it inspire YOU more than other similar players?

Quote:

That's because you're being obtuse. You can easily go to youtube and type in gospel drumming, then look for younger guys too. It's quite common as the style typically comes from growing up playing that way from quite young ages. Kids start in church, and get good, get a following, sometimes go other places. The internet is awash in it.

If you feel better now i accept that his style is 100% gospel.

Benny Greb is 12 years older than him, just give Shariq some time for god's sake. Like i've already told you in the previous post, he's original and creative, and for example if this is not crazy complicated stuff i don't know what to say:

I just looked up his bio. In addition to the word "gospel" being mentioned, it also says he's been working on this; playing the drums since the age of 3. That's not a prodigy that's a ton of work and passion. He's been working on his skills for 23 years at least, and even went to a music school.

We have weirdos who come on here to promote themselves with threads like these and they often use grandiose terms and put together little "press kits" to post here all while pretending they aren't that person for some odd reason.

It's cool that you're excited and inspired by a drummer. You should talk/think about that drumming and why it inspires you so much. Analyze it. Learn some of it. Talk with us about how cool a rhythmic idea is instead of dropping solos and proclaiming "prodigy".

Don't worry, i'm not here to promote myself, my brother or my cousin.
I'd like to post some different videos but unfortunately 95% of the videos with drummers on the web are solos or part of songs filmed badly, i know there's not just solos in the drum's world.

Keep in mind that english is not my first language and that my vocabulary is limited, i do my best to try to be understood, i know that broken english is a pain in the ass for you native speakers.

Actually i agree with him..If you are not able to give a few names without searching them first yourself or referring other people to Google, then saying that there are many young players from the same level like him are just empty words, especially when you ask other people to explain why a drummer has a certain quality..

Now, apparently you studied Gospel-drumming a lot, then just give us a few names and explain why they are at least from the same level of playing..

To me they all sound the same, like, they just sound the same and then i lose interest to really study them..Thats my completely superficial opinion..Taste..Only taste..I am just not interested in 'new' Gospel..I prefer to listen Sam Cooke with The Soul Stirrers if i want to hear Gospel..

Now, teach us something please..

What the hell does "same level" mean? Names and ages mean literally nothing. When someone stands out, they stand out. Age can get a kid noticed, but only has so many uses with the passage of time.

I'm chalking this up to his limited English knowledge. I honestly couldn't tell that he wasn't a native speaker with that impressive press kit in the OP.

Anyway, here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EB4bO2CU6rc
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q773FBdRjtw
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9S_ibYZGi5E
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1qg9myFCqw

None of those examples are even as old in birthdays as the length of time Shariq has been drumming for. Most less than half. Since these are also mostly music examples rather than drum solos by themselves, I'll also let you have your own internal struggles about "same level" or not. Comparisons like that are beyond useless.

As I said, it's fairly common for this burst-y gospel style to attract and develop in the younger crowd.

Shariq is a great drummer and now that I know why the terminology used was weird, I'm fine with it.

That was kinda the discussion untill now, and then you post this..:

Are you serious..?

If someone says 'can play like that' or 'same level', thats kinda the same in my world and you yourself started to compare the guy with 'lots of others in that age range' who can play like that..lol..

I mean, having a normal conversation gets a little difficult like this..

I know, right? Actual musical examples of actual young drummers must be quite a shock to the system. I enjoyed watching all these 100 times more than those dry solo videos.

And none of them are prodigies. Just hard work and love of drums.

Totally agree, buddy.

I totally honestly didn't see anything all that impressive in the videos when I compare against other drummers in that genre, which is why I was asking what was so inspiring for the OP. I'm not interested in a players age unless they're like, early teens and really impressive. Late 20's is a grown man to most of the world and a guy who's been playing for 23 years is bound to be a good drummer regardless what age they started at.

I thought the same thing when you dropped your "it's time to let the young cats play" at the expense of a guy like Vinnie, comment in the other thread.

I think it just goes to show there's something out there for everyone. And we may not all get turned on by the same shit.

There's little point arguing matters of taste.

It's exactly like posting videos of KIDS if you ask to say some names of 26 years old drummers.....exactly the same!

And none of them are prodigies. Just hard work and love of drums.
I was right, you are trolling.

You're the one getting uppity about age being a factor, when it's just not, as I proved by showing you some great drummers in the genre that aren't even as old as the length of time Shariq has been drumming. Continually asking me to find drummers in the exact same age as this guy is asinine. He's well past the point where you get extra credit for being a kid and his age is irrelevant, as I showed by posting actual young kids playing actual music with immense talent that is actually ahead of their typical age level.

Especially in the youtube age, if you think the world isn't full of great mid-20's drummers, well, I just don't know how much further this discussion will go. You either stand out, or you don't; and again, after mid-late teens, you don't get extra credit applied for being young. There's absolutely no reason why you can't do your own musical discovery instead of putting your head in the sand and thinking that because I won't list within your parameters, there are no other great drummers in their mid-20's. The fallacy isn't even vague.

Sorry, you're right. Shariq is a true prodigy, there's nobody in his "age range" that's even close to his staggering ability to hit drums better than anyone else alive at any age and he's already changed the face of drumming while solving world-hunger and is not just another youtube gospel drummer with chops.

Threads like this show why internetforums in general should not be taken that serious..

Internetforums have own rules, a own hierarchy..Like, for example, a father who is looking for a drumset for his child will give automatically more value to an opinion from a member thats on this forum a few years with 4000 posts, than to a member that just joined with 2 posts..Thats how things work on internetforums..

Weckl was also 26 years old when the drumming community heard him play 'Got a Match?' for the first time and he was 29 or 30 years old when Back To Basics was released and everyone was stunned..At that moment there were ofcourse also 100's of drummers worldwide in that age range who maybe could play like that, but Chick Corea chose Weckl..The difference is that those other 100's we could not see, because they were not having the opportunity to broadcast themselves to the world..But even if we could have seen them, then Weckl still maybe stood out or maybe not..We will never know..All we know is that Weckl is considered a legend now..

Now, at this moment every Berklee guy or every Drummers Collective guy or every other talented guy can broadcast himself and then we say..: uh, there you have one again, only chops and typically a YT-guy blablabla..

Stanley Clarke could have chosen any drummer in the world to play with him, because every drummer would want to play with him, but he chose this guy and then here, on this forum, the 'wise' comments are that this is 'just a guy' and 'lots of others in that age range can play like that'..No explanation needed, nothing..And posting those children videos is just a joke, not relating in any way to a drummer like this..

Like i said, the style of playing is not really my taste, but to say that there are many drummers in that age range who can play like this guy, without giving any substansive explanation is just completely meaningless and just another prove of what i started with..: on internetforums everyone is considered an expert after a few years and 1000's of posts and they never need to give an explanation why they should be considered like that..

Again, what does "play like this guy" mean? Do I have to find examples of only 26 year olds doing every stupid lick this guy did before you'll find it to be a meaningful comparison? Neither you nor the OP has even started to describe to me what is so special about this drummer, so how could I ever guess what you want to see? Putting your head in the sand and believing that there aren't tons of other late 20's players who can play those boiler plate gospel chops is just willful ignorance or stubborn argument with your arms crossed, period. I've personally seen so many youtube videos of drummers playing licks and solos that they all run together and I'm simply not impressed by it any longer. A player needs to stick out for his musical creativity or the way they lead a band on stage or on tape. For being a musician, not just a chops drummer. Chops drummers are a dime a dozen.

Here's another secret, all the guys you think are only better because of age were once 26 too. Once you've found your drumming sea legs so to speak, the gains you experience over the rest of your career are more in the realm of mastery and the quick gains of learning new concepts and licks and mechanics are way behind you. As you yourself point out, Weckl got noticed around that age, so does that count or does it only have to be people who are 26 right now?

The only meaningful direct comparison is comparing yourself today with the drummer you were yesterday.

Might just be a language thing, but I wasn't actually calling the drumming stupid, just the fact that I was being asked apparently to find examples of each one since nobody would be tell me what I'm meant to compare against. It's an american expression of minor annoyance. "Would you shut the stupid door please"? Shariq's drumming is technically flashy and not "stupid" I'm just not very impressed by chops like that devoid of music since the internet has Jaded everyone to them.

Again, being 26 does not make your drumming special. You refused to elaborate about any of the actual drumming other than I guess professing that this stuff is amazing for a late 20's guy to play? Remove age from the equation and tell me what Shariq stands out for. I really wouldn't mind talking drums here, it's really just the "young prodigy" stuff I found goofy and inferring that this drumming is "really good" because of the dudes age? Like if he were older it wouldn't be impressive?

Age is irrelevant. Hard work, dedication and love of drums/music is very relevant.

Okay, we'll just pretend there's something. I just went back through the post and can't find what you're talking about. You did post another solo with an edit I think, and even called it "complicated" but I sat through half of it(bored) and did not see anything I would call complicated. Some good drumming, but we've already established that. I guess I'm just really not impressed with solo stuff much unless it really brings something new to the table.
