Gavin Harrison performs Slippin’ Away

If you do not know Gavin Harrison’s drumming, you probably have been living under a rock. Gavin currently plays drum set with Porcupine Tree, a British “progressive rock” band formed by Steven Wilson in 1987. Today’s video features footage from a clinic Gavin did at the 2008 PASIC.

What is your favorite example of Gavin’s drumming? What is your favorite Porcupine Tree album? Leave a comment below and let us know what we should be checking out. Thanks to Axel Clarke for recommending this video.

Cymbal Songs

The creativity exhibited on the internet often blows me away. Some of the my personal favorites includes videos that feature Gavin Harrison (british drummer and member of Porcupine Tree). He released a book and video set back 2007 that featured his compositions. His video of Cymbal Song is still one of my favorite videos on YouTube.

If you enjoyed that video, also check out Leo DiAngilla’s Cymbal Song video.

Obviously, a lot of works goes into the production of these videos. Are there any other videos you can recommend that we should check out?

Tud McGrearunchth’s “Louder Faster Better” • Drum Instruction

Happy Sunday everyone! We thought it would be a good idea to lighten things up with some classic drummer humor. This video speaks to the tried and true drummer stereotype that louder, faster equals better. All kidding aside, why do you think this stereotype exists? Name ONE factor that you think contributes most to this frustrating but humorous stereotype. Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Thanks to Payton MacDonald for the tip.

Vadrum Meets Barber of Seville

It’s been awhile since we featured any Drum Set here on DrumChattr. Today is Vadrum. He has several videos that are similar to this. By that I mean, shredding over classical music. Check him out on YouTube.

What’s your favorite Vadrum video? Maybe not to this extent, but have you ever had students just “rock out” to music that was seemingly unrelated? Talk about it in the comments below.

Best of WGI 2010

James Doyle was recently announced as the winner of our “2010 Year in Review” Contest. In a podcast soon, he and some of his colleagues will be discussing WGI and everything it has to offer. He also noted that we did not have much WGI content on the site, so to that end, here is the “Best of WGI 2010.”

What were your favorite WGI moments in 2010? Of all time? What would you like to hear us talk about on our WGI focused podcast with James Doyle? Any questions for a WGI staff member?
