beginning open handed drumming

just got back from 4 shows with kimock band. going back out again tomorrow (dates below). i have been listening to alot of ilan rubin lately. easily my favorite drummer right now. he plays open handed. i have dabbled with it this year but now i am really trying adapt it into something i can use live. alot of my open handed playing right now is very one dimensional but ya gotta start somewhere. the patterns are becoming easier every day and when i get on the kit it actually sounds better than it feels when i listen back. 

 

come out to a show 

10/16 – philadelphia PA

10/17 – washington DC

10/18 – raleigh NC

10/19 – asheville NC
