YouTube is an amazing resource! I can spend a lot of time listening to great performances, learning new percussion music or watching my idols perform and talk about their music. Vinnie Colaiuta is someone I could watch for hours! He is a legend in the drum set world and I remember seeing him play with Sting at the Hollywood Bowl during the Ten Summoner’s Tales tour (on Stings 40th birthday).
In this video, he talks about the groove in Seven Days.
Here’s the original video of Seven Days:
