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)

Video 4:
This video is a short collection of beats on a regular kit, from April 2011.

Video 3:
This video is a little collection of beats back on the electro kit, for the first time in about 10 months, from March 2011

Video 2:
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.

Video 1:
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.

  1. “regardless of whether I like the bands”. Don’t you love all of them, though?

  2. Ace new drumming video. A concious decision to not use the doubles or did you leave ’em in Stafford? Also amused by your instinctive catching of the cymbal at the end there.

    Really makes me want to record a few drumming videos, which I might do this week. They’ll probably sound like shit but I might be able to at least get a different angle.

    Also also, you mentioned they were audition vids: for what?

    • Ah, just the first time I ever recorded one was as an audition to some black metal band… so I have just got into the habbit of calling videos of just me drumming audition vids.

      Also good call on Band o blus… what is the real name though ?

      Like

      • Also… left the pedals in Stafford.

        Also… will do game photos RIGHT NOW…

        Used to have em, but it kept getting outdated.
