Video 5…. in 3D:
This video is essentially a 3D version of Video 4. You need Red and Cyan Anaglyph Glasses, the Polarizing ones or Active Shutter Ones wont work with this particular video. It is not the exact same take as Video 4, but a pretty similar overall series of beats. (on a regular kit, from April 2011)
This video is a short collection of beats on a regular kit, from April 2011.
This video is a little collection of beats back on the electro kit, for the first time in about 10 months, from March 2011
This is a video of me playing a few beats in October 2010 after having not played drums for a full year and not having played this, my own kit since September 2007.
Ok, So here is a video of me playing a few non connected beats on an electro kit in July 2008 after having not played drums since September 2007.
