    Are these guys making a killing or am I missing something?

    I bet drummers like Jojo and, well alot of the bigger names make a killing off of their instructional videos. Now im no media specialist or film director but i imagine that making a drum video cost next to nothing to shoot and produce. They probably don't need a real high-tech camera, and...

    My Jack Johnson cover - Flake Not my best but I heard this song at a local bar and really fell in love with the simple 8th note snare fill used more than a few times in the song. It's a fairly simple lick on paper but requires a ton of feel to do effectively!
