Online PR News – 06-January-2012 – – Chris Atchley of Play Drums By Ear has released a new post on his blog that features master classes with some jazz drumming greats. Atchley knows the importance of learning to play with brushes for all drummers and hopes to share these video lessons with his readers. Atchley has collected three videos that teach brush lessons and two additional videos that showcase brush solos on individual snare drums. Atchley’s post is found at http://playdrumsbyear.net/uncategorized/from-sticks-to-brushes-techniques-from-the-masters/.
According to Atchley, “Some of the best drummers in the world exist in jazz music. And to be a jazz drummer, you have to know how to play with brushes.
Now, you aren’t going to see a lot of ‘How to play with brushes’ books out on the bookshelves because, as Charli Persip says in one of his videos, brushes are a personal art form.”
“A drummer puts a lot of his own character into playing the brushes,” Atchley says. “So I collected a series of master drummers that show you some examples of their own brush playing.”
