Here is a video covering Thunderstruck, with Padded Cell at the Cross Keys in Knaresborough. This was the last gig of the year for Padded Cell, and possibly the last with me as a full time member, as I move on to other musical things in the new year.
I’ve uploaded a couple of drum covers by yours truly to Youtube.
SIR DUKE – Stevie Wonder
HIGHWAY STAR – Deep Purple
These are the first drum covers i’ve recorded since upgrading my video recording equipment, so there were a couple of teething problems, mainly lighting and also I underestimated how wobbly the floor was in my studio!
I will be expanding my tuition services to include video tutuorials on Youtube for electric guitar and drums! The videos will mainly be for exam pieces, with a playthrough and then some helpful tips for the piece. The first of many has just been uploaded, a popular choice for Grade 3 guitar, Old Bones Blues, from the 2012 to 2018 Rock School book.
I am open to suggestions for videos that may help with your tuition!
Last Sunday, 31st July, I took part at the Brewer’s Pride charity event in Ossett, held in support of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
I was very happy when the event organiser invited me to put a group together consisting of people who I teach. We called ourselves the Box Of Toys. This was the first time i’ve had the opportunity to do this in nearly a decade and a half of teaching, so to mark the occassion filmed the whole set, which I have included below. Many thanks to Tim, Colin and Jacob who took part, and all played a blinder!
I also performed drums with Padded Cell at the same event, which i’ve also included
