Hi Stole, thanks for the great intro to drums! I want to know at least enough about drums to program them into my compositions, so this is perfect
Awesome lessons, it's bad that it has so little views. :/
Hi Christophe, glad you like these
Hi GMC'ers! My name is Stole, and welcome to my first lesson of the "Back to Basics" series.
In this first lesson we will cover all the wooden drum components, kick, snare and toms. For all components we will cover sizes, finishes, and shells.
These lessons are made to help you understand everything you need to know about drums as an instrument. In my experience regarding drum lessons online, I noticed that there are no lessons that explain the very basic things about drums. So we will cover all these things in this series, which can be interesting to all of you.
In the followings lessons we will also cover cymbals, hardware and we will have one separate lesson where I will explain everything about drum heads and tuning. For all of you guitar players out there, I think this lesson will be useful, because once you get to know how a real drum set works, you will then be able to program more realistic MIDI drum patterns, and understand real drum grooves much better. We will use samples of every component, so you can check out how a real acoustic drum set is supposed to sound.
So join me in this first lesson, and stay tuned for upcoming lessons of the series.
