Have you ever found yourself in a musical situation where you felt out of your comfort zone? It’s a worrying position to be put in, particularly if you’re performing in front of people – and even if you’ve been playing for years, it’s certainly something that can come from out of nowhere. This month we’re taking a look at how to play the core grooves for a number of styles outside of basic rock music. From simple jazz patterns to New Orleans-style grooves and disco beats, the idea is that our lessons will give you a grounding in multiple styles that you might have shied away from, or just never found yourself needing to play. With these under your belt, you’ll be equipped with the beats you need in order to…

Prog and metal isn’t for everyone, but some drummers unite fans across the boundaries of genres. Danny Carey is one such musician, and in a move that is bound to excite drummers this side of the pond as much as it will the prog-metal community in general, Tool have been announced as Download headliners for 2019. After 13 long years away, Carey and co are among the first batch of names to be announced, and will be joined by Slipknot and Def Leppard as headliners at Donington Park next June. The news increases hopes that 2019 could be the year that the world finally hears Tool’s highly anticipated fifth album: the record would be a follow-up to 10,000 Days, an album that will be more than 13 years old by the time…

power trio

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Norfolk’s greatest gift to popular music is Alan Partridge, but it turns out that a trio of drummers who grew up across a handful of miles within the county have gone on to perform on the biggest stages all over the globe. Steve Barney (Anastacia, Annie Lennox), Nathan Curran (Basement Jaxx) and Luke Bullen (Bryan Ferry, Joe Strummer) all spent their formative years just three miles apart spread across three Norfolk villages. It’s something of an oddity that all three would go on to smash the world of session drumming, and now they’ve made a film about just that. Titled 3 Drummers, the 22-minute piece charts each player’s early days, how they met and encouraged each other and delves into the mega gigs that they have…

Did you record So What? in While She Sleeps’ studio? “That’s in Sheffield. We’ve had it about three years now. It was an industrial factory so we took it over, cleaned it all out, and built a studio in there. There’s a practice room, kitchen, bathroom, five bedrooms, storage room. It’s really cool, we’re quite blessed to have a place to chill and create all this stuff. We’ve done a lot of the album recording there now because Carl [Brown, producer] has his own studio but he moved over to the warehouse this time to make it easier on us. And we can record for a longer period of time. We’re not totally under the clock.” That’s quite a luxury! “Defo! I don’t see any point in rushing an album if it’s not…
