Drumming & Learning

I’ve been down at Blueprint studios with Bryan working on a few more ideas and concepts. The other week, we were looking at the system demonstrated by Gary Chaffee in his book “Sticking Patterns” to work on independence, tightening the groove, polyrhythms and stick control. My technique has been at the forefront of these lessons, and it is gradually getting better. I’m trying to eliminate the bad habits and just become a better drummer. On Tuesday, we were working on my left hand technique a little more, and playing through the Sting track that I had been looking at. My tutor also thinks it would be good for me to play a track and sing some backing harmonies over the top. Nervous at the thought, as it is unexplored territory for me, but it could be good. Food for thought..
