    Default 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 my playing a lot of good. All the way from time and feel, to technique and coordination, and creativity!

    In fact, I've done a couple of blog posts with some of the lessons discussing certain aspects, both technical and creative with some of the grooves.

    BLOG 1: TECHNICAL
    https://nickschlesinger.com/soul-vac...n-drum-grooves

    BLOG 2: CREATIVE
    https://nickschlesinger.com/funk-drum-beats

    Anyhow, I wanted to share the cover with y'all if you're interested. It took me a month and a bit to learn, and 6 takes to get it in one go.

    THE COVER

    Enjoy my concentration face playing Soul Vaccination. Next stop: Squib Cakes!

    Have you guys been learning Tower Of Power stuff? Would love to see some cover!

    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 problems accessing 'em!
