As drummers, our end goal is playing and making music with other musicians… So how do we break away from being “just the drummer”? In this lesson, Dali Mraz will teach you how to approach songs from a more melodic perspective rather than a percussive one. This includes being more sensitive to the other instruments, learning when to add embellishments without taking away from the main melody, and other tips to help you be more hands-on in the writing process.
