Drum Beat #24— videos show technique and talent


In this column I decided instead of the written word I would spend my time searching the internet for informative videos concerning drumming.

Here are some links to some videos on the web that are great drumming videos. The first 10 are various lessons, drummers talking about drumming and some interesting drum related videos that are worth seeing. The last 10 are drum solos by drummers that I believe are pertinant.  Enjoy the viewing.

not sure the direction the column will take. I thank you for reading and following the column.
