Funny Wedding Drummer – I love this

I am sure this man drums at everyone’s wedding. He has a great exagerated arm technique. Learn to play drums like this:-

Dale Anne Brendon – Great Birch Sound – Great Skills – Great Solo

Very relaxed player with a perfectly tuned kit. The toms sound awesome.

Here is the girl to teach you how to twist ’em

Twisting sticks is all part of being a drummer and on stage you have got to be a showman. I like to twist the sticks between cymbal hits.

Best Drum Intro – Deep Purple – Fireball

You just can not get a better drum intro than this. Designed by the legend himself – Ian Paice and in memory of Jon Lord

Play along to this – Great Fun -The Who

Keith Moon (The Who) – I always found that when you drum along with this track you can almost hit anything and it sounds right. On this clip however, although I love the original to bits, I came across a Disco Remix which I had never heard before and found this not only a great mix but a bit of fun.

Now for something completely different
Wishbone Ash – Vas Dis – Steve Upton on Drums

Steve Upton the original and best drummer of Wishbone Ash – Great snare technique

Who should be Crowned King?

You need to get this down to play Toto’s Rosanna

What a lovely pair of hands – Caroline Corr on the Bodhran

Michael Shack on the V-Drums and two Roland SPD-30s – great performance

It looks like Michael Shack has rubber arms – he is my favorite electronic drummer and makes great use of Roland V-Drums and SPD-30s

Who needs a double bass drum pedal? – Great lesson from Mike Johnston

What a great right foot – looks easy but Mike Johnston shows you how to practice the things you are weak at – Contains some very good advice

Sadly this drummer knows this tune too well – Super Mario Bros 3?

This is just mad, sad and crazy but it goes to show what you can do with any song no matter how silly it is – even the Super Mario Bros
