Another new Training Track in our webshop!
14 May 2016
Colin has composed another Training Track - this one to accompany shuffle fills in subdivision 6222.
We have launched a new training track in our webshop - a shuffle loop for practising the triplet fills on page 27 of Drumsense Vol 1, with opportunities for playing the same fill in a different way at the end of each four bar phrase.
A young lad sat watching Top of the Pops on TV (too long ago to mention) dreamed of being in a band. "I'll play the drums" He thought "You don't have to read music for that" (Ha..........little did I know). Anyway moving on from settee snare and sombrero crash cymbal I bought my first kit and the rest is history.
Played for my own amusement and with various pub/club bands for 15 or so years and then, after being made redundant from so-called 'steady jobs' I thought "I'm going to earn a living doing what I love!" And so it has been ever since, not an easy road travelled but I'm enjoying the journey.
Now I not only want to play I want to teach and pass on my endless enthusiasm for drumming (I'm sure a few rudiments will creep in too.......Ha!)
Apart from my studio work with a local singer/songwriter I've toured Denmark with their biggest circus, been resident drummer at a holiday park in Wales and sailed the Caribbean on the second biggest liner in the world. Also played numerous pub/club gigs with R'n'B/soul bands, a swing band(where I learnt to read the dots!!!) and a funk band.
Current gigs for me are 'Citizen Smith'- The 'New Waves Faves' covers band, Cloudbusting - award nominated tribute band to the music of Kate Bush, 'Soundtrack' top function band and in the pipeline is a tribute band to The Police. I'm also the dep drummer for UKPFE, the UK's leading tribute band to the music of Pink Floyd and studio drummer for local originals band 'The Viewers'.
Whatever you do with your drumming have fun and enjoy it, you never know where it may lead. Hopefully as far as you want to take it!!
Along with my knowledge and experience, the biggest tool I use for teaching is enthusiasm and the Drumsense program is the perfect vehicle for me. It combines fun, fills and fundamentals which is the way I approach teaching. You learn something new and have fun doing it, thereby reinforcing the skills learnt.
