Lessons for the Groove Drummer brought to you by KMKanDrum will be releasing Lesson 3 on Saturday, November 14th, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) titled "Why Learning to Read Music is So Important for Drummers." As the title suggests, I will be making my case regarding the importance of reading not only drum charts but any music chart.
It's full of valuable information as well as tons of resources, links, charts, and diagrams. So be sure to not only watch it on YouTube but also come back here for your one-stop-shop for all the reference links and other supplemental content.

In the meantime, my daughter and I watched this cover I did a while back. More for the song than anything I added to it. But I was thoroughly impressed by the sound quality of the drums, especially the rim knocks. I thought I'd throw it out there for you all and tell me what you think?
This cover didn't get much traffic, and I think it's one of my better ones, not only for it's sound and production, but I don't think I made any glaring playing errors and I feel like I get a little more emotional on this one, being that the original drummer is my uncle, Carlos Vega, on stage with James Taylor at the height of their touring days in 1992 with an all-star band including Jimmy Johnson on bass, Don Grolnick on piano, Michael Landau on guitar, Arnold McCuller on background and lead vocals, and many others.
This, in my opinion, was one of the better songs off this 30-song double live album. What do you think? Enjoy!
