You want to be great. You want to have a deeper understanding of how time functions. You want to be comfortable with phrasing in odd time signatures. You want to know what a polymeter is and how it works.
The only way to gain these qualities is through dedicated, focused practice.
I wrote The DrumMantra Books for myself. I wrote them so I could study concepts that I was beginning to discover but didn't quite have a full grasp of yet. Some of the exercises I was writing required meticulous planning and thought due to the inherent complexity of the concept. Take polymeters - these little rhythmic entities can take many measures before a resolution occurs. For example, a quarter note, a dotted eighth note, and a five-note grouping create a pattern that takes 60 beats to resolve!
When I began to realize that just because I was selling books didn't necessarily mean that people were practicing the material correctly which is why I created the DrumMantra3030 - so I could guide a person step-by-step through the Foundational Series Book in 30 days.
The 3030 is a challenging course that will take you on a ride into some territory most don't consider in their musical adventures.
The online video course has been a great way to get this material to people all over the world. And now the course has found its way to over 30 countries around the world!
(Yes, you have to have taken the course to reap this massive reward. But think of it like this - If you take the course, you are going to be a much stronger player by the end AND you have a chance to get a FREE LOW BOY BEATER worth $60!)
I am doing this because I want you to see the course all the way through. I want you to have something to show for all of your hard work.
So, if you've taken the DM3030 course, I am going to give you 90 days from the final day of the course to complete Day 30 to win the Low Boy Beater.
Anyone that completes Day 30 will gain the title "DrumMantra Ambassador."
To qualify for the beater, please submit a video of yourself playing each of the three sections of Day 30. Notify me when you have it so we can discuss uploading options (Youtube, Vimeo, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.).
