In the spirit of Christmas I have uploaded a CHART for “What Child is This?” by Mercy Me. They do say “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to play drums LOUD for all to hear!”
Here is a new chart for you to try. It is for the song “Doo Wop (That Thing) by Lauryn Hill. It is an awesome song and super funky and sounds very simple, but I included some things in the chart that may look a little different so stay on your toes. It’s right here ——-> BOOM!!
Here is a new blog post. It includes a article I wrote for The Music Factory OC, plus some information beyond what is in the post. I had seen some things online talking about how drummers can learn drums without having to learn all the “boring” stuff like rhythm and theory, and I decided to give my two cents. I believe it is in a drummers best interest to do what they can to better equip themselves. Check it out!!—-> HERE
Here is the latest chart I have put on The Phat Beat for your playing pleasure. You know you love 80′s synth, so indulge yourself with a little “Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad” by Prince.
Here is a link to the Phat Beat where I have a recommendation for book I actually finished cover to cover. It is great for learning grooves from a lot of styles. It has helped my drumming a lot. And plus Larry is a pretty cool guy.
Here is the latest entry to the PHAT BEAT ! This is a chart I threw together, check it out and see how your sight reading is!!
Hey Everyone! I have just launched a new blog that will hopefully present a lot of useful information. It is called the Phat Beat and you can find it HERE. I am still in the beginning stages and I plan on doing some interviews so you can learn a little bit more about some drummers and also get some cool little tips and tricks from them.
Here is a sample of some drums I recorded using Roland V Drums.

Here is another session that I was lucky enough to be a part of. This session took place at Keep the Edge Studios with my college roommates Keith Asack and Kim Pfluger who have since moved their studio to a killer space in Quincy, MA.

This was a soundalike project that I played drums on with some good friends of mine while I was in school. The session was really fun but the tune was actually really challenging because we all had to learn the parts just like the record or as close as we could get to it. It is just the audio but you can also find links to the other players who took part in it.

I have had the privilege of being involved with this project and working with the brilliant minds behind Startank, Joel Darling and Ieva Berberian.
