  1. Here's a cool treat. My good friend and long collaborator George Marios, worked on a series of covers and he asked me to play drums on these tracks. This is the first track: his version of "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons. George's arrangement is pretty sick. His usual use of syncopated stabs and odd-time signatures, puts a smile on my face It's fun to play and it was even more fun to create the drum track for the song. ENJOY!!!
  2. Periscope from the Vic Firth's Play-alongs, once again Mixture of Electronics and funk and whatever else... ope you enjoy and don't forget to hit that like and subscribe to my channel for more videos.
  3. Yeah, I never listen to the original. I look for a drum arrangement that suits the song for my ears, and that it's in my style. I rarely play a backing track just as the author wants it to be played... I guess it's the 16yo rebel with no cause that is still in me XD
  4. I'm always more keen to play originals. Unless we play covers that we re-arranged as a band. After 6 years playing covers non stop, they are not fun for me anymore. I'm in a period in my drummer life that I want to be challenged and want to "release" my creativity; and that happens only with originals. So far I've been lucky to meet people that give me a lot of freedom on my drums, so I don't complaint
  5. Everybody knows the riff from "Chameleon". Herbie Hancock Docet! But this version... So groovy and chilled... I had to play it! Harvey Mason nails the arrangement on this track (check his drumming out). This is my version of it... Hope you enjoy!
  6. Top 40 yeah? I know what you mean. Absolutely go for it man! Are you going to write new stuff or play covers?
  7. May I ask what type of music you play? Because 75%% of the time bands are happy with me playing the simple basic groove... You gotta do what you gotta do. Gotta pay rent right? But the other 25% wants me to go crazy XD There's no in-between here in London XD Or at least with the people of the scene I'm playing. The ones telling me to overplay are usually rappers/hip hop or prog bands Thanks for your feedback tho I'm planning some other videos in which I play less... In the sense that I stick to the groove without so many fills. Just to see how that goes
  8. Hey my friend! I know exactly what you mean. When I play live there's no way that I'd get away with some of the things I'm trying here. They would look at me with a WTF face. I guess I tend to overplay in these videos as I assume it is watched mainly by drummers. So I tend to take risks and show what I usually work on when I'm practising. And maybe get some cool feedback back. Even a criticism it's a good exchange of info. And don't believe the video, I love playing grooves and nothing else. I could play Sex Machine for hours... And there's nothing better than when a kick syncs perfectly with a bass in a groove... Hmmm In any case I always try to follow the music. Bass, guitar, voice... whatever attracts me the most rhythmically.
  9. It's ROCK time!!! My last rock tune was with Gregg Bissonette's "Submarine" and I had a blast! Round 2: Carmine Appice! What can I say? The man is a legend in the 70's rock scene. I say, Vanilla Fudge? The man played with Jeff Beck himself! Anyway, Stash! Feedback are appreciated Peace out fellow drummers!!
  10. Another great track from Zoro! I tried to keep it simple but then I decided to go for a crazy fill at one point XD I don't know how well it fits but I enjoyed this track! Hit that like button if you enjoyed the video and subscribe to my channel to be updated on all my BACKING TRAX SESSIONS! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_qfuON695U
  11. Yeah man. If I have to be honest, the only reason I use an e-kit is for respect to my neighbours; otherwise I'd be hitting the S*** out of my acoustic kit... Another reason is that is so much simpler to put a drum video this way... You don't have to stress about mic positioning, and mixing and the whole recording process in general. This way I just connect 1 MIDI cable to my sound card and BOOM! hit record... Of course it's not the same... I use Logic X for samples and drums sounds and effects, and it is pretty basic sounds (the drums were already on Logic), so anyone could do this
  12. Cool poppy tune with funk and rock influences. Fun to play. Check the original out by Rhett Frazier in the Vic Firth Play-Along section. Hit that like button if you enjoyed the video and support my channel by subscribing to it. Cheers guys! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZGSY_J3Cec
  13. Cheers man. With all the advices people have give throughout these videos, I think I finally got a good eq for my bass drum P.S. New video out
  14. "THE FUNK MONK"... The Funkiest/80iest backing track ever. Enjoy this take on one of the many Vic Firth's play-along list. Originally performed by Zoro. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZvXRLq-k9Y
  15. Yeah! Pure Metal hahaha And then the happy 4/4, kick on downbeats, very poppy almost. Love the tune
