Beat 186 of my #DrumBeatProject 7.25.23 - w/2 var. beats, xtra vids and notations. Lots happening here! Using @sunhouseinc #SensoryPercussion on the toms for some extended tones. The SD part w/brand new @davedeming Jazz Broom sounds more like part of the “ride” line along w/the 1/4’s on the stacks and so the HH acts more like a backbeat here imo - w/a nice delay effect from the super cool Creative_percussion Klacker on the HH!
Getting a nice tone on the toms w/the @tackle_instrument Stick Topper on my @promarksticks sig stk. And using 2 different treasured @Zildjiancompany mini stacks to create a tonal difference & cadence to the beat as well. 2nd vid has 8ths in the RH, but I call it a different beat since that change completely alters the feel & groove. 3rd vid opens the RH to just whole notes so it’s easier to hear the linear exchange of the other 3 limbs/voices - again 1 simple change = very different sound. 4th vid eschews HH flair so it’s easier to hear the cool interplay between the stacks and HH. Again 1 simple change yields a totally diff. result. And 5th vid w/shaker mallets caused me to slow it down and swing it more, that’s why I love trying little alterations, preparations, revoicings, implement changes, tempos and subtle feel explorations with a single beat to reveal a WORLD of possibilities and new beats. Btw, these vids are the first time playing the SD from my beautiful new @sonordrumco SQ2 kit which I’ll bring out this fall w/ @wilco!
