This is something I did with a brilliant drummer I met on Facebook. I just threw together a neo classical-esque piece for fun and we decided to go OTT with it !!

Wou!! This is a killer track! I feel that this is something completely new, it's the first time that I hear a neo classical piece where the interaction is between guitar and drums, I think that this is like Race X or Cacohpny but instead of two guitarists, the counterpoint is between drummer and guitarist. You both should definitely continue exploring this stuff because a live show could be something interesting and unique to see.

Keep on rocking!!

I just have watched drummer guy's video several times. He's using his crazy creativity all over the place. Example that rhytmn change at 1:14 & 2:23.

Brilliant cool.gif

What have they been feeding you Benny da shredding demon! Wicked skills and an awesome drummer to back it up.

Some YouTube tips for your videos to go viral and get those hits you deserve:

1) Improvisation, you need to suck really badly then quickly built up to your epic awesome in smaller doses for people to register in their tiny brains - x2,000 more hits per day.

2) Attract negative, racist and sexist comments from low life who think they can do better and call it fake - x200,000 more hits per day.

3) Become a hot chick or just title your videos as that - x2,000,000 more hits per day.

Hey Ben! great playing, great drumming! Chapeau! biggrin.gif Gabi observed a very important thing - your collaboration with the drummer goes on at this interesting level where your phrasing comes together very tightly smile.gif I find it hard to remember all those lines at this point, as I have put myself into your position as a player biggrin.gif

Yeah a drummer can hear loads of different rhythmical things that I can't hear, it's very cool to work with great drummers !
