LATEST DRUM LESSONS
EXCLUSIVE SPONSOR LESSONS
Hello, Alex! I just recently joined the site and I am looking forward to checking out the lessons. I start a new job tomorrow so things have been a bit turbulent lately, but things will have slowed down some by the weekend.
I stumbled across a few of your videos on youtube a couple of months ago and was really impressed, so I thought I'd check out your site (which led to me becoming a sponsor). What I liked about your clips is that all of the things you come up with are (for lack of a less juvenile way of putting it...) very very cool. What's interesting about so many of them is that even when they're not exceedingly technically challenging, they just sound GREAT, especially when you start doing them a little faster.
I'm looking forward to getting as much as possible out of this site. I do have a bass guitar lesson at 3pm on Saturday but as far as the rest of the weekend goes...I know how I'll be spending most of my time. Thanks, and I'll talk to you later.
Hello mate, thank you for the post and your kind words. What sort of lessons are you looking for? The website is here for me to focus on specific lessons for members, so feel free to make requests and share your progress. I will always be here to give you tips if you want to post videos of what you are working on. Cheers mate and happy new year!
Hello again, Alex. I'm now learning #363, the tom fill. It's a perfect example of what I mentioned above--something that isn't all that difficult but which sounds super cool, especially when you do it faster. In terms of lessons I'm looking for...I'm not entirely sure. I'm going to spend as much spare time as possible learning the previous 362 lessons first, which I suppose might take a while, huh? In all seriousness, now that I think about it, maybe a lesson on developing a solid single stroke roll. Mine kinda stinks, but I like to think that's because I really haven't spent that much time researching how to do one properly.
Have a great week, and thanks for the reply!
Additional comments on 363: I really like this fill because a lot of the movement is driven by your weak hand (your left hand, but I'm completely left-handed, so my weak hand is my right). Once you get the dynamics nailed and can do the fill without thinking about it too much, you can move it around the different toms on the triplets, extend the number of triplets, and so on. This fill is very very cool and a lot of fun to play.
