I've been working on a paradiddle version of Three Camps as well as a snare solo called Flamboyant. It's written by my first teacher, Howard Curtis.
Where in Malaysia are you based? I spent a lot of time working out there. I wonder if we know any of the same musicians?I’m in Malaysia. We got 14 days of restricted movement to deal with. Today is day 6.
Yesterday i managed to get my cymbal inventory spreadsheet updated.
355 cymbals and hihat pairs so far.
I’m also working a bit on bass drum Bonham triplets.
I got everything I need at home - no suffering here.
What a great album. That's a good project for this extended period of isolation.I'm finally learning to play De-Loused in the Comatorium. That whole record is inflammable, and Jon Theodore's playing is impeccable.
I'm also spending some time to really dial in the recorded tones with the Gretsch kit. Upgrades to my front end means I get to play around with new mic preamps!
Videos will be coming out with more regularity soon.
We played that song as a regular on our set-list.Nice. I’m going to mess with those grooves when my son wakes up from his nap.
I've seen it played live on TV and yeah.....I have a sneakin' suspicion that the dude played the shuffle on the snare and played the upbeats on the rack tom and the floor tom.Really? You mean in addition to the shuffle being on the toms too?
Here's another one I did if you're interested....I've been working on a paradiddle version of Three Camps as well as a snare solo called Flamboyant. It's written by my first teacher, Howard Curtis.
Digging into parathon now. I like that it works the hands and also is musical, which is what I love about those Wilcoxon solos. You have textbook hands. There's a lot to learn just by watching how you play this stuff.I'm teaching 6 days a week via Zoom.
Done 5 remote recording sessions for artists trying to finish their records... I have another track due tomorrow... going to try to work on it today.
Doing a 4 way split screen "Isolation Jazz" video for a friend ... more difficult than it sounds.
In some spare time trying to work my way through the 150 solo Wilcoxon book ... very challenging.
Also started a video series to try to keep my students inspired and motivated to practice in these uncertain times...Episode 2 literally just went up seconds ago.
