Okay guys let's all be musicians please. Lol you guys asking for these drummers to "play a simple groove, play the song"! Sound super retarded. Lol or maybe your just using your common sense. Let's look at some things, 1)the video is named Berklee CHOPS! 2) 10plus drummers all playing one track at the same time 3) this is a SHED SESSION, not a gig. Need I go on? Lol the fundamental standard for a we'll rounded drummer is a guy with discipline, knowledge of history, artistic, expressive, multi-genre, speed, control, power, dynamics, versatile, unique feel (chops) can lock it down and can solo. Berklee is where you go to become polished, knowledgable, and to learn the things you may lack that will take limits off of your playing. Sheds are where you go to take a break from the theory and express yourself, learn new ideas, experiment, show off, have fun! These comments show how limited some of you are, and exposes how dumb some of you are lol why would you watch a video highlighting chops, and the solo aspect of playing drums, and say "I wish they'd play the groove". That's not what this for!!! Lol I garentee if you look up every drummer in this clip individually on a gig, I'm positive you'll fine them playing very professionally. Because there's a time and place for everything. If your going to critique, don't be an idiot please. Know what your talking about! Because there are millions of musicians out there who read some of you guys comments and wrote you all off as a mentally incompassitated Infant immediately! Lol let's be a little smarter Next time guys lol

+Waylan Andrews agree with everything you said. college is overpriced though, for the value it provides. you can easily get the same music education without going $200k in student debt.

everyone playing in this video prob said the same when they first heard buddy solo.

I'd like to hear them play actual songs with actual dynamics. Riff jockeys are a dime a dozen.

literally everybody in this video has a DW kit. Lmao

I sincerely hope they're not this good when they audition, because if this is my competition... I'm gonna get blown out of the water.

Footage likes this makes me wish I would have taking drumming more seriously and not just treated it as a hobby lol.  This was fucking awesome.  Also the dude in the grey and red crewneck has the greatest drum face of all time.

Chops, and individual skill and talent and ask "why won't they play the song"? That's not what this is for! They made this video to have a good time, and learn from eachother, express themselves, and enjoy being a drummer. That's it.! Back down, some of you idiots are so blind, you can't even see or read how dumb u guys sound, lol I'm embarrassed for y'all LOLOL

Yall mofos crazy putting these phones on these snare drums lol Even with good accuracy wouldn't risk that

Jonathan Newman's hi-hat game sets him apart. Too smoov.

these drums all sound so good. THESE TOMS

If you give a room full of drummers an infinite amount of time of constant playing, they will eventually play every possible beat.
Report spam or abuse
Frank ,Sean,and Nick were the best
Report spam or abuse
The best are Amber baker, Jonathan Newman, Sean Wright and of course, jp bouvet, in my opinion... but they are all beasts

The guy with the mohawk is not that good.

Agree, he lacks of musicality

+Andrew Toh He's more rock than the other guys, so is his kit (im assuming its his). There's no way he's significantly less skilled than any of those other drummers though...

@Samax13 oh I agree 100 percent. It's very over priced. Why pay thousands of dollars to go to a university to study music when you mentee under someone for free. My only problem with the people commenting judging these guys is they make it like because they go to Berklee, everything they play has to be a Robert Glasper Concert. People take things to far.

At the beginning of this video I was all like "this is sweet!!!" By minute 6 i was like "could someone please play a groove!!!"

how the hell do you play this kind of stuff? it's so ridiculous to be able to keep the time in your head and play whatever you want and make it sound amazing. I'm sure it takes loads of practice, but how do you even practice it without getting lost?

Is it me or did they get super off from the track at some points. Or was the track possibly just thrown over the drumming, I can't tell. Idk if they're listening to this song with their headphones or maybe just a metronome. I don't mean to take away from their playing though, they killed it

Awesome drummers all. Guy with a cellphone on his snare cracks me up. How are you playing that AND checking facebook? :-) Re: the comment at the end about "...there's no ego's here...", drummers don't have egos. Try this with 10 guitarists though... then you have a problem lol.

Have you noticed how many of them look like their influences....    I'll say the drummers names and you put the player to the name...  Thomas Pridgen, Abe Laboriel Jr, Travis Barker, Marvin Smitty Smith..  LOL

Yeah I feel kind of bad for Ian, every time he goes before Nick- his kit is so much softer it just makes it seem like Nick is completely one upping him. I think it's the sound quality though.

Great players. I'm wondering though...do you get a DW kit when you sign up there are Berklee?
Report spam or abuse
Those pinstripe heads do sound great on those DW drums though! I've always liked them, ever since I had a set of Yamaha Recording Custom drums, way back in the day.
Report spam or abuse
That would be awesome... But JP endorses DW, so he probably got a few from them for the video

Nick Smith and Brandon Maclin... to much for my mind
