NEW Drum Video...Check it!

Hey everyone. I recently bought a bunch of recording gear and some mics and did my first video test with the audio recorded on my board. It is a short video but sounds decent.

I am still working out the kinks and everything, the bass drum is a little low in the mix, and I don't have overheads yet, but its still not bad!

Download the video titled "evdrumtest81104.mov"

Post feedback below!

Thanks everyone!

Peace out,

Evan

That´s some great drumming Nevesis, very fluid and precise, but
I would like to hear some grooving from you. For me it tells me more about a drummer than all the techniquall stuff. Looking forward to it!!

Sounds awesome. Kick is a little low like you said and overhead mics would help, but it sounds great anyway. And I agree with Jonberg, we want grooves!

You'll never get them, because he can't.

Btw, Nev, still sharing the premium stuff on the Pearl forums?

yeah, really...you need to play a groove now and then. Your playing is very one dimensional, no dynamics, all the same speed and gets very boring very quickly. Sorry but im being honest.

Uh, oohhhhh!

Hey, Evan, is that not pretty much a slap in the face to Virgil and the other Premium Members of this site?

I, myself, am not a Premium Member (obviously... look near my username), but I can honestly tell you that my boxers would be bundled as bad as undies if I saw Virgil-Donati-Facial-Expression-Ripper-Off'er going around hosting and letting hundreds of other forumers from other forums watch videos of a drummer who's charging an arm and a leg (in a good way) to view, for free..

Come on, are you obvlious to rational thought, or what?

With that all said, I will admit to downloading those videos, but because of the opportunity it proposed, since I'm on a 56ghey connection. However, I'd say since I do indeed have my own identity behind the drum set, unlike yourself, mate, in the end scores me more points; so it's cool.

I don't care what anyone says about my playing. You do not know me, and never have seen me play in person live therefore its a ****ing joke for you to try and judge me. Your comments fuel me to practice more, so actually keep on saying negative things because it makes me want to go play and get better.

I am already better then you and all the other people in this thread who posted baseless opinion's on what I played in those videos. Constructive criticism is one thing, jealously and going after someone because you just do not like them is another.

Maybe you need to go hit the practice room and get off the internet for a while so you can live in reality instead of this fantasy world where you can say whatever you want and hide behind a computer. Because if it was you and I in a room with two kits and we went head to head you would lose and I guarantee you wouldn't have the balls to talk **** to me then!

Damn boy-son, what condition do you suffer from? Automatically assuming that since someone really finds your playing to be rather tasteless and lacking of the most important thing, the groove (and no, not your used-up 1+a 2+a on the hi-hat/ride, 1's and the last 16th note of ever four quarters on the bass drum, and ghost/grace notes on your snare).

Some may consider what you have as "chops." I consider them basic, BUT well-developed senses of rudimentary application and orchestration.. Fair enough?

Your endless Dennis and Virg licks really overshadow any originality in your playing. It's one thing to be influenced, but it's another to blatantly steal the obvious trademarks of another *Ahem* Dennis's "signature" triplet ostinato.

Having that said, you've never heard me play. There you have it!

I do not need to defend myself anymore then what I stated. Your a tool, and can pick me apart as much as you would like, but your not the one actually going places with their talent.

Oh really, what places are you going?-- Because I'd really like to know.

As I'm knocking on wood as I type this, since I don't like making big stinks over something that I try to remain as careless as possible over, even though I view my college education as a back-up plan still, I'm working with a band that has an open foot in the door with not only Island records but also RCA. With a national manager working with us and doing all that he can to prepare us for our special meeting with an A&R guy (a very speical one he knows from Island, and the president of RCA being one of the guitarist's uncle's and father's good friend), we're bustin' our chops and trying to do things the right way. Really, we have it easy, and there is nothing wrong with that.

This band has been a band for just a few weeks over a year, and with 15 original tunes, each of which has been recorded by a world renowned engineer as well as artist and performer (see Dave Hanner-- Has written material for plenty of artists in his time and has also toured with Emerson Lake and Palmer, Yes, Fleetwood Mac, Kenny Rogers, etc.), we're still churning out more and more material with a goal of 30-some to present. Due to how labels are really into the pick and choose side of things, we're working our buns off, avoiding writing anything that may be looked upon as a "filler," to atleast keep 15 tracks for a debut album in case half of the tracks are eliminated.

Not to mention, as I've just been informed, we've become a hot act as of this past saturday when the president of Joker Productions, one of the biggest promoters in the south-western Pa. area for some of the bestest clubs in Pittsburgh, decided to check us out. Not bad, eh?

So, again, where exactly are or do you think you're going? Do you specialize in any other instruments that will maybe increase your chances as a musician rather than/or are you "just" a drummer?
