    Flippin' eck!
    Kind of puts my pathetic attempts at programming VST drums within cubase in pathetic perspective.

    Never mind the incredible precision, it looks impossible for someone's hands to move that fast!

    That little kid is pretty good, but it's easy to do impressive sounding stuff with 2 kick drums or a double-bass pedal.

    oh yeah,a piece of cake.is that why he has won a number of contests throughout the world in the last 8 years and been mentored by dennis chambers and has done more sessions than any drummer here has had hot dinners.like most drummers stuart you appear to suffer from that little green thing called envy.credit where credit is due.unless of course you play to that standard,in which case why are you running a web site and not working as a musician ?what he plays is far more than what hes doing on the kick,its about stamina,precision,timing.the guy is an all round player,not your common 4/4 cock rock drummer,i dont think dennis chambers would waste his time on someone whos pretty good,do you ?

    I think one of the problems we have here is that people don't bother to read other people's posts properly. Guys please read my post again.
    What I said is that with 2 kicks (or a double pedal) it's easy to do impressive sounding stuff.
    It is.

    The most impressive pieces of drumming I have seen have been more 'traditional'

    Firstly a group of Japanese drummers playing some massive drums, some double sided. Masses of power, massive of stamina needed.

    The second is a bodhran player called John Joe Kelly, from Manchester. Just amazing sounds out of a bodhran :clap:

    Sure. Actually I think that boy is very good irrespective of his age and amazing given his age. I only commented because he is a boy after my own heart in that he uses 2 kick pedals. I wouldn't consider myself to be particularly good at all. Never said that.
    Here's a 2-kicks 101 just to show how simple it is. Turn it up very loud, Ian - it might blow the cobwebs away from your eyes so you can read my posts properly :eek:.

    it seems your missing my point stuart.i was merely stating the fact that given his age his playing is extremely good,he may well be playing something not that complex,but he plays with so much more,i,m afraid your effort proved that.to simply dismiss his playing ability i felt was rather negative and something i have often come across in drummers before.anyway happy drumming.
    cheers

    No, your point was that I did not appreciate what he can do. And your point is completely wrong. I do appreciate what he does. Very much so. But people here - who sound like non-drummers - were wowed first by the street drummer - who is also very good, of course (particularly in the way he lifts the drum with his foot to change the tone), and then by the kid. My point - which you missed completely - was that it's not difficult as a drummer to do the bits which sound impressive - particularly with two kicks. People (non-drummers) aren't impressed by a bang on perfect timing 4-4 beat. People (non-drummers) are more impressed by lots of hits very quickly - particularly with kicks in because they can do it one-handed.
    Anyhow, I'm not a drummer any more - I only play once every couple of weeks or so for the exercise and to let off steam. Let's agree to completely not get eachothers' points, I'll ignore your condescending tone :rolleyes: and we'll move on.
