Smile Loops are fun

Hi Guys,
Playing to loops is actually more fun than practicing
with a metronome, i've got a short example
on my audiopage : (drums sound kind of "flat" it's TD20).
edit: found out how to make a hyperlink :
My Audiopage
am looking for a good free webhost (file limit >10 mB)
to put some up for who's interested..

well... you can always try to play with a drum machine instead of a metronome too.

Well i put up some loops with my zero HTML knowledge,
Loops are at : http://www.freewebs.com/ericdrumz

The loops are a bit SYNTH based..
it's just another add-on to use for practicing phrasing
that's what i think..and what i have to do more..
You have to download the files first, streaming works very
bad from freewebs.. don't worry, there's no virus.

Added some handy links at bottom of page..

wow, cool drumming do you have an electronic or acoustic kit? geez, how long have you been playing (sorry for that question, it's just me )? your technique is flawless...
You are free to do as they tell you...

In my opinion the drum mix does not honor your drumming skills. That being said, I thought the drumbytes were very impressive. I dig the Virgilesque fills you play.

Hey, you found my thread..
Thanx for putting the Loops back up, try
soloing/phrasing on them, it's cool.

about me : I've been playing for 25 years, but
what i do is still basic in terms of speed and
i "fell asleep" twice in developement..
Dave Weckl and later Virgil "woke me up" to
practicing new stuff again..
also compared to most members on this board,
i'm still average..
I can only record electronic drums into computer,
(easier) but also have acoustic drums.
