Mark, you are too kind! thanks for your comments and the other emails. As I mentioned in that last email response I'm also available for Skype lessons as well and how they compare to live lessons (I trust you got it?) anyway glad I could help.

Hi. I've been playing drums for a couple of years now. I have an electic kit for practice at home and I play in a studio on an acoustic kit once a week with my band. I'm starting to upgrade my electric kit to mesh heads piece by piece and have discovered superior drummer software sounds great ! I noticed you have an electric kit too and was wondering if you know if there is a device I can buy which would be like the drum module that normally comes with an electric kit, but without any ...

Hi Mark, thanks for the comment. No, I don't know of anything out there that doesn't already come with sounds in the first place. Anyone else out there know?

Gregory, looks like we are close to the same age. Thanks for the good words. I checked out the videos and liked them. Also, if you ever want, I offer more in depth critiques for a somewhat small fee on the shop page here on the site as well. All the best....

Hey there:) Seems like I already got a question to you.. quick explanation: I didn't have the possibility to play drums for quite a while, now since a few months I found myself at being asked more and more often to play as a studio drummer.. But I kind of feel a lack of timing in my drumming.. In other words: Do you have a few tips on how to get better in playing with my metronome? I've noticed that my main problem is the kick.. Somehow my right foot is always a bit late.. Thanks in ... Read More

Sure. I'd be happy to help. First, to zero in on the problem, I have a question. Is it a matter of bass drum technique (not being able to play quarter notes and eight notes at medium and fast speeds that match up to the metronome?) or is it just sometimes any random bass drum notes (even on "one") that you are finding don't always match up?

Awesome! Well, my technique isn't that great anymore but speed (unless it gets way too fast) is no problem. The only problem regarding my technique is that I'm struggling frequently with the timing of faster double kicks, for instance when I'm using the heel-toe or sliding technique. Single Kicks are in general no problem. But that's a matter of rehearsing those techniques I guess.. The main problem with timing, which is bothering me, is the lack of timing on some random notes ... Read More

I see. Well I have a video that might help get you started. It's a free one, so click on the home page to "view all previous updates" and select Update #6 from April 2014. It shows some things to get you started. Hope that helps. I do give Skype lessons as well if you ever wanted to get more into detail. Scott

Wow.. I just randomly found a video of yours on youtube.. I just felt the urge to thank you that you're sharing so much high quality information for free..
I guess I'll spend some time on your lessons to fresh up my drumming skills.. Every bit of information you give is really good and helpful..
Thanks, you're awesome!

Best regards,
Maxim

How do you play the drum break in Cream's Deserted Cities of the Heart. I've never been able to figure it out.
