We are calling the band V.H.F…..Here is Joel taking a pass at the lead of Backside of your Eyes…
wait till you hear the completed version!
Competed the drum tracks for my new EP. Heard the rough rhythm tracks…great work by Tony Franklin. Sent the first 2 songs off to guitar monster Joel Hoekstra
Cannot wait to hear the finished product….pretty trippy grooves…rock on.
I have been recording scratch drum tracks for a new 5 song CD. Great players fun tunes. Groove rock instrumentals. I hit the studio in mid March to record my actual tracks. Look out for videos as well as song samples. More info to follow.

nanigo patterns with double bass groove
I like to add this type of pattern to spice up shuffles, blues and swing. Try going over the bar line for added oomph…..just make sure you hit 1 so you do not throw off the rest of the band…..
I have been writing tons of double bass drumming exercises. Several will be published in upcoming Modern Drummer magazines. Breaking in my new Ludwig Atlas Pro double pedals in the process. Hands down, they are simply the best pedal I have ever played!
