The Most Important Beat I Ever Learned
As David and I were discussing his lesson material for Drumeo, he began talking about a drum beat that heavily influenced his own playing and was popular amongst drummers in the early 70’s: the “King Kong” (created and coined by Pete DePoe). Today, David’s here to show and teach you this groove that inspired his overall sound that we’ve all come to love.
Our thoughts and prayers are with David as he’s currently recovering from an accident in Oakland, California, where he and fellow musician Marc Van Wageningen were struck by an Amtrak train before their show with Tower of Power.
