Foot Ostinato – Lesson two from the DrumChannel!

DrumChannel have started releasing my drum lessons that I filmed for them at their Oxnard California studios back in 20-something! 🙂

This was lesson #2 and the first left foot ostinato pattern that I learned. I used it a lot in my practice and drum clinics and I now have several that are far more complex and hopefully highly musical too.

Anyway, this was my first and it’s cute watching it again after all these years, I hope you enjoy it!

DrumChannel lessons are now on YouTube!

I am happy to say that the great bod’s at DrumChannel are now sharing my lessons on their YouTube channel. I visited the DrumChannel in 2010 and had a great time hanging out with Don Lombardi, we had some great meals and lots of chats about the mighty Buddy Rich too. I am proud to say that Don still talks about this 3 bar warm up and uses it when he teaches!

They filmed 3 lessons whilst I was there as well as having an hour long show about me and my career  hosted by the great Curt Bisquera.

 

Palace Drum Clinic – Redditch.

BIG thanks to all who came along on Friday night to my Palace Drum Clinic in Redditch. It was a great night and we had a room full of eager drummers all up for a full on evening of drumming!! Thanks go to Matthew Green for organising the event and also for playing a great first set. The ace Craig Fenney from Cympad International was there promoting their great products and Mr. Phillip Beazer was on hand helping with the drum set up, and providing awesome company throughout the day. I look forward to returning to the Palace Drum Club again at some point, it’s a great vibe and provides drummers with a valuable learning experience. I hope to return there again at some point and I look forward to it! 

Here are some clips from my performance:

Rob totally enjoyed his clinic at the UK NDF this year!

He was joined by the amazing Hammond organ/keyboard player John-paul Gard and they performed a 4 song set.

Each track highlighted a style and drummer that has influenced Robs drumming and creativity.

Check this link to watch Robs tribute to the late great Tony Williams, the track was written by JPG and is called ‘Smooth Williams’
