I receive comments from drummers asking me why I use an electronic drum set? Well, sometimes life throws you a curveball and you are forced to make tough decisions. For me, it was either playing an electronic kit or possibly not playing anymore.
I chose to purchase my first Roland TD-11. Seven years later, I have learned a few things and my Drum Den is where I share those insights (and some electronic-made groove) with you.
Plus, I am getting really good with Final Cut Pro X and it is fun to share those experiences as well. 😉
Chunky is my FAVORITE Bruno Mars tune, so I just had to find a copy to drum to.
Thank you Karaoke Version and Tency Music for allowing me to use your tracks! www.karaoke-version.com and www.tencymusic.com.
Well, here it is. I have been working on this track for a few weeks. It is from a GREAT play-along Series called Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Play-Along. This was from Volume Two. I highly suggest you pick-up this play-along.
Personally, I feel pushing a big band is the toughest gig a drummer can do. Reading, timing, color, and setting up the hits for around seven minutes is a real workout. It is even harder on an entry-level Roland Td-11… I’m not gonna’ lie…but quite doable when you use some technology tricks, feel out the kit, and work within its limitations.
After months streamlining the process, I am proud to offer custom made drum tracks for singers, producers, songwriters, and bands looking to enhance their demos, albums, and other recording projects.
My goal was to make this offering as seamless as possible. It all starts on my Custom Drum Track Page here where you can learn more about my process, check out some samples, download a few free tracks to try, and place your order securely through my site using your credit card, PayPal, or Amazon Pay account. Each track is only $25.
Once the payment is processed, I will send you an email requesting your scratch track. Email me that file and I will drum to it on my Roland electronic kit, enhance the tracks using Logic and Steven Slate Drums, and then send you the groovy studio file all mixed down as well as the raw Midi version, so you can edit to your own liking.
I look forward to drumming with you!
