A revised version of my earlier posting, now utilizing my proper recording equipment. This is a great drum song, requiring agility, endurance, and independence.
Even with my mixing board, I play all songs through my headphones from an iPod, then mix the video on iMovie with the song from iTunes. Unfortunately, my iPod plays the songs slightly faster, about 1/2 a second over 6 minutes. Therefore, I must fudge the mix a little at the end and beginning to make it match for the majority of the song.
It is critical that every drummer develop their own unique style and interpretation. Therefore, I do not memorize any song exactly. I have spent 30 years playing drums and have developed my own style, which I prefer. I keep my playing within the framework of the song and will play a part exact if that part is either iconic (like Phil Collins In The Air Tonight) or critical to the success of the song.
Thank you for watching and lots of success drumming!!
