Pretty good deal at Sweetwater for $110. I bought the same cymbal in 2018 from Cymbal Fusion and have used it consistently as my primary go-to crash for pop-blues-jazz. This cymbal opens quickly, and is a bit darker but more complex than the usual AAX crashes...
Really enjoyable but wistful documentary on the history of Tower Records, from its humble beginnings to tragic demise of closing down all U.S. stores in 2006.
The entire movie is narrated by former Tower executives, employees and some high profile musicians. Free on YouTube.
One of my favorite drummer's (Joe Morello) solo on a favorite song (Take 5), transcribed (and shown visually on sheet music) while being played by an excellent drummer on a jazz drum set.
It's easier for me to soak in drumming transcriptions while reading the music in addition to watching the...
Interviews with drummers, by Ross Garfield, The Drum Doctor.
Just discovered this YT channel and loved every interview he's currently posted (I think its a relatively new channel).
"Here, you can spend some quality time with the world's most renowned drummers, listen to their stories, find out...
Interview is from around 2000/20001.
Interesting to hear MY explain how integral Phil Rudd was to creating "their sound" vs. the other drummers that had played with AC/DC. That his style swings more and the others were "stiffer."
Quite the compliments and endorsement that PR was "It" and they...
Rick Dior is a professional drummer/teacher that has the most incredible instructional videos on perhaps the widest range of percussion/drumming topics by one person anywhere on YouTube- from drumming techniques, to drums, to concert band and jazz band drumming, to all sorts of gear...Whew...
Always enjoy getting that behind the scenes, close up view of the legends drumming away live or in soundcheck. Instructive as well.
This fun little 5 minute video gives a good glimpse of DG's gear, how he has it all positioned, some of his technique, styles and sounds.
Anyone tried these cymbal sleeves yet? They look like they'd get the job done well sonically, replace the usual cymbal stand accessories, and simplify setup/break down.
(OK, let the jokes fly if necessary. I didn't name them!;))
Really lots of juicy details and his personal insight into his drumming, The Beatles, gear, etc.
A hidden gem of an article (I'd never come across before). :cool:
Wow- I thought this cover was equal in greatness to the original song by The Band- this time it's collectively performed by Robbie Robertson, Ringo Star and many other amateur musicians from ACROSS the world.
"Playing For Change
We’re excited to share our newest Song Around The World, “The...
I checked out some sticks at GC the other day that had these gripps on them and was pleasantly surprised how comfortable they felt.
I don't know if they might be a bit tough to use on sticks for a complete gig, but in the store they seemed non- chaffing.
I've found for the past few years that...
