"Walk the Dog" - A Lesson with Gregory Hutchinson
Happy New Year everybody! Welcome back and I hope you all had a safe and pleasant Christmas and New Year's wherever you are.
Thanks to our European correspondent David Grebil, here's a good one to get the year started off over here at Four on the Floor.
This is an excerpt from a drum clinic with Greg Hutchinson in which he demonstrates his approach to ride cymbal phrasing and the important, central role of feathering the bass drum:
He uses an interesting analogy in that the bass drum represents the "centre" of the drum set so it should represent the centre of beat.
So, the next time you play your ride cymbal remember to "Walk the Dog"!
