Default Aaron Spears

I'm new to this guy, but this video had such an impact on me i uploaded it onto youtube. This guy is tighter than a nun's paycheck! Hopefully you will enjoy, peace.

Yeah, this clip is from DVD of the 2006 MD festival.

Aaron appears with three other drummers from the hip-hop/gospel genre - Marvin McQuitty, Gerald Herward and Teddy Campbell.

It's not a style I'm totally familiar with, but the four guys are all red-hot - especially Aaron Spears.

Interesting point he makes about the importances of coming back around to the one. I feel like no matter how fast your chops are, if you miss the resolution it just sounds like crap. I think Aaron does a good job of building large melodic phrases within his grooves and is (within the context of actual music not just solos) very disciplined about when to let loose with those incredible fills.

Default Anyone getting the Aaron Spears DVD?

From the clips, looks OK..Not sure about the educational value based on some of the "answers" given to the questions posed in the set up master class. Might be worth it for the fill concepts. Ebook transcriptions...I dunno..we'll see how the money goes..Things are tight these days, and I want ALOT of educational value for my buck as opposed to lots o licks...

I don't think that it will be totally educational to be honest.

Maybe John Riley's dvd or alternatively you could pick up a load of old modern drummer magazines.

My local drum shop has loads of old copies and they sell them for 4 for a fiver! So for the cost of this dvd (40) you could get...maths......32 drum magazines. Each having atleast 2 or 3 good exe4cises in deifferent genres.

And your recycling

Dave

Awesome drummer. I'd not heard of him till tonight. Glad I did! He has a knockout groove.

Dang, Aaron is so good. His demand around the kit is amazing. Has anyone tried out his sticks?
