Thank y'all for joining me today! I sincerely hope that you are able to gain some useful insights from the class.
In the interest of saving paper, I've attached my lecture outline below for your convenience. There are also two Spotify playlists - one with examples of the country drum grooves we discussed and another with personal examples from recent recording sessions that demonstrate my take on similar ideas. In addition, I've included a few favorite video clips from my past live performances, as well as a few recommendations for music-related podcasts and drum set method books.
If you have further questions about the material covered today, or are seeking advice on gear, music, or career-related matters, feel free to contact me any time at firstname.lastname@example.org
A total encyclopedia of drum grooves and variations, covering an expansive range of genres. Includes many variations on chart forms one might encounter on a gig, as well as play-along tracks for each groove.
Interviews with pro drummers/percussionists working at all levels of the industry, from touring to studio to film/tv. Excellent perspectives on the ups and downs of various career paths. 180 Drums website also include free lessons.
Interviews with songwriters and bandleaders, mostly from the Country/Americana genre. The former is hosted by Chris Shiflett from the Foo Fighters, the latter by TX songwriter Joe Pug. While neither are specifically drum related, both are extremely well produced, informative, and offer insight in to each writer's process.
An absolutely incredible series by Tyler Mahan Coe (son of David Alan Coe) on the stories and history of classic country music stars. In-depth and very well researched, and the stories are crazy interesting. One of my favorites.
