I got inspired to play this tune when I saw Rafael Barata doing a clinic at Berklee over a year ago. He played along to the track of this song and I really liked this style of presenting drum techniques to people in a musical way. I was astounded by his brush technique, his feel, and the smoothness that he was able to achieve. In this video, I use brushes throughout the tune and try to use different motions and phrasing on the hi-hat to be able to give the tune a gradual evolution from beginning, to middle, to end.
Hi, and welcome to my video blog page! Through my posts I hope to share my love of Brazilian music with you; giving a sneak peek into my studio to see what I am currently practicing and playing.
