I haven't watched that throwback MI video for a while but I'm sure he talks about electric drums and he hated them.Yea, I've watched that entire video at least 10 times. Great information that survives to today! The only thing I'd wonder if Jeff was still alive today, would be his opinion on electronic drums and the like - because boy, have things changed since the 80s!!
No doubt they were - in the video Jeff says he hates them because they have no dynamics and the sounds are cheesy. Compared to today, things like the Roland TD-50 and Pearl Mimic Pro are either real sampled drums or have the modeling and sampling capability light years ahead of what was in the 80's no to mention the fine tuning adjustments for pad triggering. So I simply wonder if he'd still hate them!electronic drums and drum machines were extremely prominent in the 1980s
... and hey jimzo ... my alma mater as well
This is cool!
Glad you like it spleeeeen. Yeah, considering he apparently was anti electric drums it is a bit surprising. Here's another one I made. I took an 8 measure isolated groove of his from his instructional DVD, looped it and added some random tunes, percussion and a shaker, including a bit of earth wind and fire. This shows just how deep his pocket was.This is cool!
I'm surprised to see a Simmons pad.
