Well, I missed the deadline for Drum Solo Friday again. The good news is that Vinnie Colaiuta doesn’t care…

Observations:

– I’m pretty comfortable listening to odd time signatures and over the bar phrasing and all that. He still loses me… A LOT.

– Style points for traditional grip. 

– Index finger out technique on the right hand stick grip… which is very similar to how I’ve always done it. Guys have told me that this is “wrong.” I’m just going to show this video to the next guy who tells me that.

… I mean, just so you know…

– That 22″ ride… I must have it.
– Vinnie’s groove at 4:10… OH MY GOODNESS
– The story at the end about how they named the cymbals… so lame.
