    Hi Gábor
    You are the first Hugarian I meet on Jared site I joined 10 years ago
    Congrats on your drumming, the idea that drummers should not be only loud and fast as hell, but musical, and on your great knowledge of English:) that is also an exception you have and master.
    Örülök hogy itt ismerhetelek meg. Rengeteget tanultam Jaredtől kezve attól hogy nem a dobokat kell ráncigálni amikor felrakom a szetet hanem a két pedált letenni kénylmesen és hozáépíteni a szettet. Imádom az ilyen gondolkodást.
    Sok sikert
    Tassy Sándor

    Hi Gábor, every time I think I’ve witnessed on Drumeo the best drumming performance by the best drummer in the world, someone else comes along and impresses me beyond belief. I believe you must have hit every item on your kit, and, not once did you look to see where that item was situated, obviously you know your kit, but fantastic to watch all the same. Thank you for the intricate clinic, it just means I need to live for a further 100 years to be half as good as you! Bravo!

    Well, I guess I’ll go slash my wrists.The ability to ride with either hand is amazing.

    Right off the top my favourite part was that he’s totally fluid leading with either hand!

  • John Westover

    Amazing independence with both hands and both feet. Makes me even more motivated to practice, practice and practice. Thanks so much, awesome lesson.
