Snare solos

Today I was trying out a newer version of a solo I have been working on over the past few weeks – trying to make the most of rudiments etc but also engaging with the elusive ‘dynamics’ aspect. And keeping it short but snappy!

Most interesting was the way it changed as I considered (or tried to) the needs of the listener / watcher by viewing other drummers and trying to work out just what made some exciting and some dull.

Not sure which category this try out falls into but I feel happier that it’s got a little bit of most things in but hopefully with enough variety to keep things interesting.

Apologies for the camera angle! Only place to put it!
