Get Good: Tuning—Bob Gatzen’s “The Tonal Drummer??? Video


For the May 2012 issue of Modern Drummer, we talked to MD Pro Panelists Gil Sharone and Bob Gatzen, as well as jazz great Jack DeJohnette, about the subtleties of drum tuning. Bob has posted many insightful You Tube lessons on the subject over the past few years, including this drum solo featuring motifs that, among other drumming elements, explore the use of pitch. We’ll be posting more of Bob’s videos on tuning, so stay “tuned”!
