#VICFIRTH #VF15 – 15 Second Video #2

May, 8 2014

As mentioned in my previous post, my friends at Vic Firth have started a new social media craze called #VF15 where artists send in a 15 second video of a performance.  Vic Firth posts these videos on their facebook page and on their Instagram page.   They recently asked me to send in some videos and I will be posting them here as I go.

Here is the 2nd video I sent in to VF.  This is a groove from my recent book entitled “Maracatu for Drumset and Percussion”.  You can find this groove in the drumset section of the book under the New Orleans Bell Patterns section.  It mixes a NOLA bell pattern on the right hand while playing a maracatu groove in the bass drum.

 

 

#VICFIRTH #VF15 – 15 Second Video #1

My friends at Vic Firth have started a new social media craze called #VF15 where artists send in a 15 second video of a performance.  Vic Firth posts these videos on their facebook page and on their Instagram page.   They recently asked me to send in some videos and I will be posting them here as I go.  Below is the first video I sent in.

The stinking pattern for the groove that I’m playing is:  LLRL-RLRL-lRRLL-RLRR.  The left hand stays on the tom while the right hand alternates between the cowbell, snare and floor tom.

Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to jump over to Vic Firth’s instagram to see all of the other great artists #VF15 videos!
