Beat a Day | Day 883

I am so stoked to announce that I am a Meinl artist!!! Earlier this week I got to spend the day at Meinl’s US headquarters playing A LOT of amazing cymbals and hanging out with top-notch people. I’m so excited about the complexity of tone and texture that these cymbals bring to my playing. Thank you Meinl, for welcoming me into your family! My setup: (in order of appearance – all from the Byzance series) 15″ Dark Hats 24″ Big Apple Dark Ride 20″ Extra Dark Thin Crash 22″ Benny Greb Sand Ride Stack: 18″ Trash Crash 12″ Extra Dry Splash 18″ Byzance Dual Crash 22″ Vintage Pure Ride 22″ Dark Ride 20″ Jazz Thin Crash

I took apart my @indexdrums HardHat to give my snare a bit on rattle.

Beat a Day | Day 879

At my @percussivearts Day of Percussion master class on Saturday I talked about about how creative playing doesn’t always magically appear. Sometimes you have to take several small steps. Each step evolves your beat further and further away from your original idea landing you in an entirely new place. As a group we came up with ideas for taking these steps. This was the first idea someone suggested. Playing the floor tom rim while playing a beat is certainly somewhere I haven’t been before.

Experimenting with tuning my @sjcdrums kit a little lower to blend with the sound of my Acrolite with the snares turned off.

Sometimes all you need is a short and simple repeating pattern. I love the hypnotic feel of grooves like these. Also, sometimes you have to give your beautiful wife the head nod that it’s ok to not be trapped on the stairs waiting for you to finish 😘
