My last blog post for CATwithHATs. Instead of drums, I hit a dead-end street. But I need to keep moving. Get a better picture of why I am letting go.
Is there a way to improve one’s groove on the go? Jost Nickel should know since he wrote a whole book about groove. So I asked him and he gave away interesting details.
I boosted my vlogging audio gear. How does recording with a digital Sennheiser AVX system feel like? Since I own the lavalier version, let me briefly tell you as much as I know so far.
Finally I got to see “AcouTronic Beat Freak” Michael Schack perform live. That raised questions in me – about e-drum history, hybrid drumming and the future of it all.
My first contest is over. Drawing a winner was the easiest thing in the world.
Will Hunt hits drums without compromises – for Evanescence, Vasco Rossi, Mötley Crüe and others. But preparation is key and writing clear and easy-to-read flow charts helps. See how it’s done.
Rock, metal and fusion drummers are into Zildjian A Custom cymbals. Do you want to add an 16″ A Custom Crash to your set-up? Zildjian sent me one and I am giving it away to a creative, excited drummer.
Steve seems to be a common forename for outstanding drummers: Ferrone, Gadd, Houghton, Jordan – finally I did get Steve Smith in front of my camera.
Finally I am able to publish a new post in this series. My latest keypal is from Guatemala: Alan Velasquez. We met online, where Alan runs a facebook site in Spanish to help people practice drums better.
Brendan Buckley is the drumming link to all of these and more: Julio Iglesias, Shakira, Shelby Lynne, Miley Cyrus and Tegan and Sara. For 20 years he tours professionally and loves it.
