SKF NOTE: Digital technology is an amazing tool for drummers. Having spent many career years prior to digital technology for research relying on books, vinyl albums, audio cassettes, magazines, FM radio, and the occasional live event — I very much appreciate the wealth of digital information available now.
That said, I would love to hear your feedback on the use of digital sound in two ways. First, the short (60-90 second) sound file of drums, cymbals, and other drum equipment, i.e. “Click here to listen to the new [Brand Name] 20-inch ride cymbal.” Or, “Click to listen to [Famous Drummer] play a groove on the new line of [Brand Name] drums.”
Are such sound files of value to you? If so, in what way(s)? Or if some sound files are of value and some aren’t — why? What is the difference in good and bad sound files?
Second, online drum lessons. I have in mind the type of video where a drummer, sitting at his kit, looks into the camcorder and says, “Hi. Today I’m going to show you a couple of signature licks from [Famous Drummer].
Are such online drum lessons of value to you? If so, in what way(s)? Or if some drum lessons are of value and some aren’t — why? What is the difference in good and bad online drum lessons?
Thank you for for your help. Feel free to contact me with questions and/or comments.
