Hi everyone! This weeks video is all about getting more out of less. It was a fun one to make. Thanks for watching. Hope you like it.

Cannot believe you just gave up instead of clicking your sticks together.

Seriously, that was awesome. Really instructive and such great fills. (And killer groove.)

This is great stuff!
Can you tell me how you tune your snare? I know the top is tight but how is the bottom?
Hi. I've always tuned snares really tight. I just kind of like that sound. This is a Black Panther snare, really nice. Generally speaking, the bottom head is tuned pretty high also.

For me it's truly something I need to keep in mind, to be able to use the amount of gear I have and to make it interesting without being obsessed about buying new stuff all the time.

Less is more like they say in the Linux "Book of commands"

Really that's great, being able to play well, a lot of variances on a small kit, I really like that idea.

Thanks for the comments. Indeed, it’s good to be able to do stuff with the resources we have. I guess this goes for a lot of things in life. It gets us to search for the most results out of each element.

Thanks for the nice comments. Much appreciated. Don’t go throwing all your gear out too quick, you might need it someday. ? But seriously, I appreciate the comments and happy to inspire some ideas.

Oh I will keep it all. :giggle: I just know first hand that your idea works, at least in my other art form. I’m a photographer and at one point I carried nothing but a small camera with a 50mm prime lens. Same concept in terms of almost forcing creativity. Not only did the photos improve but I really enjoyed working with less gear. The minimalism brings some clarity or peace to the creative process. It’s a great exercise!
