Adam Marko: Drummer’s Tools To Enhance Musicality
Remember to leave a comment with your FAVORITE part of the lesson for a chance to win a pair of Adam Marko’s signature Vic Firth drumsticks OR a copy of Special Providence’s album, “Essence of Change”!
About the lesson:
Adam Marko will teach you how to further your musicality on the drum-set by taking a normal drum groove and changing the hi-hat, ride, and crash patterns to achieve a range of musical emotions. You can take all of these patterns and apply them to ANY beat. He first covers 4/4 time, then dives into 7/8! He’ll also play to multiple Special Providence songs including a short piece where he puts these ideas into action – attaining a variety of feels without changing the kick or snare placement.
