John Riley is, quite frankly, a master drummer. And whether you play rock, pop, reggae, jazz or whatever, John Riley’s teachings will make you a better drummer! With that in mind, check out these videos.
I love the concept of headroom that John talks about in this clip.
The technique and idea of efficiency talked about this clip are essential for all drummers.
Finally, just like the Tommy Igoe video I posted a while ago, check out John’s cymbal technique
If you haven’t checked out The Art of Bop Drumming you have missed one of the preeminent instructional books FOR ALL DRUMMERS!
