  1. What's your favourite room to record in?

    So, the other day I recorded a few drum loops in a big, lively untreated room (see one such groove below)!

    Your favourite triplet licks!

    When thinking about classic Rock drummers of the 70s, I tend of think of John Bonham, Neil Peart and Keith Moon. I love all of them yet, invariably, my favourite is Neil Peart, R.I.P. That said, I’ve...

    I get you. I agree, we can be influenced by people but ultimately, and physiologically, we are individuals.

  6. What drummers do you hear in your playing?

    So, the last few months I’ve been neck-deep in learning Tower Of Power songs and David Garibaldi’s grooves. Between lessons, I got noodling and came up with this groove:

    Sorry about that, bud! I forgot today I moved to a new, faster server, so my site was down for a bit.

    Just tested the links, and everything's good so have a go. Let me know if you have any...

  9. What i've learned from soul vaccination

    OK, so I'm pretty chuffed with myself because I've done a drum cover of Soul Vaccination by Tower Of Power.

    I've been studying David Garibaldi's playing for a few months now, and I find it's doing...
  10. The connection between language and rhythm

    Don't know about you, but I've always found the connection between language and rhythm fascinating. Words have their own inherent rhythms (i.e. syllables) that we can use to string together rhythmic...
  11. Six Stroke Roll Creative Applications! :)

    Every so often I get the opportunity to write for a website or magazine. The latest was an article I wrote for Drumhead Authority where I break down a creative funk groove I came up with based on a...

    Once again, I agree with you. Developing your ears is important, and developing instinct by listening to loads of music is key to musical development and choices. The article is just distilling how...

    Hey! Thanks for your suggestions! I checked out the links, and they're great. I hadn't heard Joan Osbourne in ages. Great vibes all 'round. On the second video, when that tambourine comes in, it...

    I oversimplified because, don't know if you read the comment I was replying to, they were saying that the drums is the easiest instrument to learn by ear. My point is: not necessarily. ;)

    Agreed,...

    I disagree. You're thinking AC/DC... However there's this type of thing which, trust me, isn't easy to figure out by ear.

    First off, you have to remember that professional means getting paid to play drums. I, for instance, am a professional drummer; it's my job. Similarly, just because you're a professional, doesn't...
  17. Learning to play drums by ear. What's your process?

    I actually started my drumming journey on my own, without any guidance. I started playing along to songs on my own... I learned by listening to music, and watching people play on TV or live, and just...

    Sounds to me like it's a motivation / goal oriented issue! What I mean by this is what you're motivated by. Maybe I've misread / misunderstood your post, but it sounds like you've achieved your goal...

    I'd say on the contrary! They're, in my view, one of the most forward-thinking drum companies of the big manufacturers.

    With regards to your point about seeing Tama kits on music videos, you have...

    Thoughts on self-learning drums

    So, Iím a drum teacher, and have been teaching for many years. Similarly, I believe in the value of education, and take lessons regularly, and do self study.

    That said some people choose to go...

    Social media has forced us working drummers to use the platforms as a way of engaging with potential customers (artists, students, etc). From a personal stand point, social media is a great way to...
