Have you been inspired by the tom tom thunder of Gene Krupa, the ride cymbal work of Tony Williams, or the solid pulse of Art Blakey, but struggled in your own efforts to achieve their balance and fluidity? Have you ever felt that no matter how many hours you spend working through exercises in instructional books, your time feel still ain´t . . . well, swingin´?If you answered yes to any of these questions, don´t feel too bad. You´re probably among the majority of today´s drummers. Whether you play jazz, big band, blues, country, ska, or good old fashioned rock´n´roll (basically, just about any style out there), you will sooner or later be confronted by the following challenge: Can you really SWING a band?If the mere THOUGHT of having to navigate ´´Green Onions,´´ ´´Moondance´´ or ´´Take the ´A´ Train´´ on the bandstand gives you heartburn, then this video is a must! Truth be told, the ability to swing has little to do with chops or fancy technique. Rather, it involves understanding a few basic concepts about motion and balance, then remaining conscious of these when you get behind the kit. Now you can learn these ´´Principles of Swingtime´´ from Daniel Glass, one of the top swingers in the business!
