Your demo's/footage

Seems like there are a few good drummers on this forum, I just wanted to invite you to post your vids if you haven't already.

Here´s something. Playing solo after 2 hour rock gig wasn´t a good idea i was was pretty tired. But I used arnold´s method: " When my muscles say no i say yes!"

Nice solo! And nice charisma too!
Perhaps (if you're interested in feedback) it could have been more "organized"? I mean your musical phrasing, to me the amounts of bars seemed to be a bit random at times.

And someone is a Virgil fan, one has to mention also ! Again, nice work though!

Yeah i know what you mean! Definately! I should think more phrases/musical ideas. Maybe four bar or eight bar phrases, There´s a good discussion about that subject in Keith Carlock´s new Dvd. Many times it feels that you need to repeat phrase several times before audience understands that you are repeating the same idea. If i would perform in front of musicians it would be even more important. Thanks for the advice, i appreciate it. Been hearing that from others too.

Hey, I liked your solo. It was fun. The crowd seemed to like it. Next time, add some really stupid stuff to it, like caveman tom tom beats. And then point to the audience so they can scream with you, like call and drunken response.

You should make sure your fill fits the bar.
