Gavin Harrison - Rhythmic Perspectives Mini - DrumsCult

This will give us total control on what we are playing. (more…)

Gavin Harrison - Rhythmic Illusions Mini - DrumsCult

 

In several interviews, Gavin Harrison has said that when he was a kid, he saw many drummers with his same age that seemed to have far more talent than him. In an interview with Drum! magazine he explains how he was terrified when he saw another kid playing to a piece in 11/8, while he didn’t even know what that was.

Gavin Harrison - Rhythmic designs Mini - DrumsCult

 

In Rhythmic designs, Gavin Harrison puts at everyone’s disposal the practical results of years of researching on rhythmic manipulation and the different tools that we can use when thinking of a drum part in any song.

That is to say, tons of content for us to study, but it will give us a unique set of tools to develop our own creativity. (more…)
