THANK YOU for all the likes, shares, comments and specially for joining my channel! If you’re not subscribed yet, go for it.... IT’S FREE!! This time I wanted to to record a solo inspired by Steve Gadd, extracted from the book “Au Fond Du Temps” by Juan-Luc Dayan. I had to learn it while I was studying the major degree of Jazz and Modern Music at the conservatory of Perpignan in France with my teacher Andre Mallau. I’ve always said this solo just changed my life, as I was just able to play with strength and tension in my arms before I’ve learnt it. Steve Gadd’s style is so unique and dynamic, so if you just can’t play relaxed this solo ain’t going to sound well. I keep using this solo for my students, to the ones who are looking for a better dynamics, and when they learn it you can just notice the giant step they have made at their sound and drumming style. I wanted to record it with a real singular snare which has incalculable sentimental value for me. It is a snare built by my father (he was a carpenter) few years before his death. This snare is made in DM (pressboard) by horizontal blocks. It has a jazz sound and I just use it in very special occasions. Steve Gadd is a huge influence in my drumming style. I admire his sound, his techniques and the dynamics for every stroke he hits, so I think this is a good occasion to record this great solo with the snare I considerate is my best. The audio mixing and the video edition is made by me in Your Sound Recording Studio, I hope you like it!
