Welcome to GMC Kyle!:D I love this lesson.
To those of you who have missed Kyle's introduction: The idea behind this new drum series at GMC is to provide valuable information on drum programming for virtual bands. And who knows perhaps we will isnpire some guitarists to pick up drums as an instrument...!
As always with new series - your suggestion on how we can improve things are very appreciated. Thanks!
Cool ! Now I only need to get my parents so far to buy me drums
I really like the ´one two three four´ thingie:)
Great lesson, this should help solve my rhythmic problems, could you explain a little bit about your equipment please? (what it is, what you can do with it etc..) It doesnt have strings so its forign to me
Thanks alot and welcome!
Really well explained and nice approach to teaching - good work and thanks
Cool, my brother has a drum, I will sure try this one out !
Thanks for this lesson , this is great I liked it very much !! Here is one suggestion , maybe you could include one video of you actually programming this same beat on a computer in you favorite DAW , just how to make a drum midi file would be great using just mouse and counting bars..You can record very easily video from your actual desktop in real time (there are programs for it)...You did a great job on narrating and your voice reminded me of some tutorials I did on editing so this idea popped out
This is great! Very well explained lesson Kyle!
Nice Lessons! Welcome Kyle!
I want drums now!!
yeah !!!! the first drum lesson is here !!! congratulations
Cool lesson. Welcome Kyle
I want to break your metronome. lmao
I use a Roland TD-6 Electronic Drumkit. It has 99 different drum sets and velocity sensitive pads. So when you hit the pad harder, it's louder and different. As far as what I can do with it...I can basically do everything a drummer can do plus some. The drum kit has a midi connection on the back, so I can hook it to my computer and use it as a midi controller. If you'd like to know more about the kit or my recording setup, I can start a forum topic for you.
Welcome Kyle, great first lesson! Keep it up!
Great minds think alike. I plan to alternate back and forth between an actual drumkit and a FREE program that I use to program beats and electronic sounds. Lesson 3 is actually in the making and it is just what you described. I wanted to start with an actual kit though because if you don't have a basic understanding of what a drummer is doing, it's hard to make a beat sound realistic. You can apply all of the principles I've shown you here to a drum machine or sequencing program.
This is an awesome lesson!!
I mean i know this place is called Guitar Masterclass, but this is the kind of stuff that makes this place even more unique than any other site!
Great first lesson
This is awesome! Great to have you here Kyle! This lessons will help me a lot with my drum programing!
Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Hopefully I can find a way to take some of my knowledge and deal it out like candy haha.
Welcome Kyle, this is a bomb of a first lesson.
This is so amazingly cool.
I JUST bought a drum set yesterday.
Really awesome. Now I just need a drumset
This is great Kyle,looking forward to more!!!
Welcome to GMC
Keep in mind...you don't need a drumset to use this lesson. You can apply the concepts to drum machines and sequencers. As new lessons become available you will see examples of how to program beats into free drum loop programs.
Good lesson Kyle And warm welcome
I cant see your lesson in this moment...but Im shore it is great...will say more of it when I see it..
Welcome Kyle! Very cool lesson!
Welcome Kyle! Great lesson
This is great man. Welcome! Looking forward to more of these man. This is definitely something we could benefit. Rock on!
Kyle, Great lesson! My two sons and I bought a drum set 6 months ago, which we "play" alternatively with the guitar. We are in desperate need of lessons, and your lesson is very well done! I hope this is the first of many! GREAT JOB!
Be sure to tell me if there's a specific lesson you'd like for me to create.
my brother just got a drum kit.
this should help a lot.
Sweet! Is it possible to make different pitches in drum hits thus applying scales, notes, etc, or is the main purpose a beat?
welcome Kyle and nice first drums lesson
You can change the pitch of the drum pads, but not on the fly. I don't know why you would want to do this to match scales though. If you're referring to the backing track, you can put whatever you'd like behind the beat. The main focus of this lesson as well as those to come is the actual beat though.
wow thats very sweet .. welcome .. great lesson !!
Great stuff Kyle! Oh, and welcome
Great contructive feedback guys (and girls!) - when we have some more drum lessons we will have a new section!
Thanks again Kyle!
I've been hooked on GMC for quite a while now, but this is too cool. I love how you keep growing and growing and growing...
What's left? Keyboards? Sound equipment set ups?
Good, Kris keep us with lot of surprises every time
wow good lesson
its amazing wat this site hasturned in2
Awesome first lesson Kyle - loved the explanations and illustrations of the techniques - long may your lessons continue!
Great lesson Kyle , awesome introduction to rythms
Awesome we have drums now!
Thats really great! I hope you will do more drum lessons, maybe i'll start playing drums soon. That just seems to be a lot of fun. So please continue. Your Way of explaining is good too.
This is great!
I would love lessons covering different styles like blues, ballads metal etc.
Please some prog!
awesome lessons kyle! i was hoping that you could go in further into other techniques for drumming like double bass playing and stuff like that...thanks!
