ghost notes..

March 4, 2017

No, this post has nothing to do with ghosts. This is about music, drumming specifically.

A few minutes ago, while on facebook, I found a drumming video featuring a musician I’d never heard or heard of before.

Drummers and the art of drumming have always been a mystery to me. I could do fairly well with hand drums in a drum circle many years ago, but never learned how to play a drum kit.

When I’ve gone to concerts,  I’ve often paid a lot of attention to drummers. I have some idea of how guitars, basses, and keyboards are played, but I’ve always found drummers to be amazing, and doing things I could not understand.

Here is a man named Bernard Purdie, demonstrating certain rhythm techniques. You don’t have to be a drummer to appreciate this video. I’m not a drummer, but I sure enjoy it!
