    Like A Stone (Audioslave drum cover)

    I'm still trying to get into the swing of doing drum covers. I have to use a low volume set up and a makeshift way of capturing the video and syncing it with the music. Here's a favorite of mine, lots of fun to play.

    Wilcoxon solos

    the latest artifact of my pad addiction is this new Prologix Russ Miller ALLN1 pad. The main surface is a pretty standard rubber pad with a lot of rebound, similar to a RealFeel pad. It comes with a resistance insert you can lay on top of it to make your hands work a little more. But the best...

    My first drum cover

    Changes, by Yes. I truly don't know what I'm doing, but I'm going to learn. This is recorded on my low-volume setup at home, so expectations for sound quality should be pretty low.

    The most beautiful drum shells finishes

    I was fortunate enough to buy my favorite finish on my dream set a couple of years ago. I can tell you that none of the excitement has worn off yet. Plus, this gives me an excuse to post another picture of my babies...

    Can anyone relate?

    I think I didn’t do a very good job with my meme. It was more of a lament that I cannot get my matched left hand up to par no matter how hard I work at it!

    Can anyone relate?
