Hey everybody,

I just wanted to let you all know that Modern Drummer is running a crazy Vinnie Colaiuta transcription (with lesson) that I recently did.

It's from guitarist Oz Noy's latest album "Fuzzy" on a tune called "Evidence".

MD put the first half of it in the mag and the complete version in the MD Wire newsletter.

I hope you all dig it, 'cause it was REALLY tough to do!!!

You definitely have the ears for it Terry. That stuff takes a while to do with massive rewinding of little bits & pieces. With that though I'm sure that you can fire out all those licks!

Definitely on my list of stuff-to-check out, Terry.

Thank again for transcribing DC for me a while back. You have no idea how much I appreciated that. Will let you know how this cookie crumbles.

I just got the new issue in the mail yesterday and I subscribe to MD online as well. I'm highly impressed, I couldn't possibly imagine trying to transcribe the whirlwind of technical ability that the track is. Vinnie is just insane. Thanks for the sweet transcription, hopefully if I practice I'll be able to play some of it..... hopefully lol.

The great thing about working off transcriptions like these, is that even if you can play like Vinnie does, you can at least get a glimpse of how Vinnie thinks.

Thanks guys,

The encouraging words mean a lot.

aydee, you're welcome on the DC thing. It was fun to do.

Bill, thanks a lot man! It's so cool hearing from you. We have to hook up and play some grids!!

LinearDrummer,

Hope those flam grooves are going well for you. That kind of stuff helps me get my "Garibaldi" on!

stasz,

Thanks and good luck with the transcription. It is a bear!!
