    dying to be heard..

    I need to do something. Granted my hearing has deteriorated some, but I can still play. I wear a hearing aid in the real world, watch tv with close captioning, yep, it's just about gone. I've had a good few years playing for schools, but no school clinics in the foreseeable future, I'm in my 60s...

    melodic drumming, can you dig it?

    This is a brief clip from a clinic airing on local tv. Playing recognizable tunes on the drum set, if you are thinking melodic,, this is it. No one else in the world does this. Yes there are better drummers, hot licks, fast chops, famous names, but no one else in the world does this.Did I say...

    Clinic on local TV

    A clinic I did this Spring is scheduled to appear on local TV this August. Two videographers (both drummers) shot me doing a school clinic and arranged for it to appear locally. The viewing area is only about 60,000 people, so if a couple hundred people notice that is okay.With what I do (sample...

    Classical Drummng as a solo

    I figured since the vadrum thread was here I'd stick this one on. It's what I'm working on now, not quite ready, I'll do a new video in a week or 2 that should sound better.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyeObwyuiwM The hard part is playing basically 2 melodies at once, then run an opposite...

    Really, Really nervous...

    I've done just under 40 school and music store clinics in my life. (I'm talking separately cause I usually do 3 a day when I do schools). They usually last just under an hour and I usually talk for about a third of the time. I've also done a few solos at conventions (good money by the way), but...

    Christmas Music Drum Solo

    We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Jingle Bells performed on drums only. Probably the only thing interesting is the end of Jingle Bells where there is 16ths on bass, 8ths on hihat, snare on 2 and 4 and the melody happening simultaneously. This is one to share with...

    frustrated..

    What am I doing wrong? I post a video on Your Place, get zero responses. I am doing something on a drumset never done before (okay, I know Akira has some melodic stuff, but he uses electronics to get it done, I use nothing but real drums). I know this particular gig was just a middle school...

    Moondance-melodic solo

    melodic drumming, work in progress so any recommendations taken seriously. I know my "E" drum is flat, didn't notice till I finished recording (crazy noise reduction headphones). This is a good insight though into a practice session of a melodic drummer. cheap camera, no micing...

    Anyone! Please!

    Post videos/audios of current day non-electronic melodic drumming! Am I the only one? I'm not talking about a bar here or there, playing along to music, I'm talking about really playing a recognizable song on drums... Anyone? Please help me! I don't want to be doing this alone!

    Easy One-Hand Drum Roll

    I got frustrated as an old man with all the great moeller technique and rim technique one handed rolls, it was taking me forever to get a decent one. I tried something by accident that worked really well that basically you can get down to be able to use in less than a week. This would be easy to...

    Reverse double bass?

    I am definitely not a speed demon or anything, but over the past couple of months I have changed the way I play double bass. Whenever I need to play 16ths I play with the opposite foot as the lead. Then, by double pedaling on my hihat and slave pedal (with the same foot) I have steady hihat...

    America's Got Talent??

    After much prodding from my teenage daughter, I decided to send an audition tape to America's Got Talent TV show. The guidelines were to send around a 2 minute video of a copyrighted, regular song, no originals. I thought about my wiz of oz solo, but it is too long. I thought of the Money video...
