The Fundamentals of Jazz & Rock Drumming Explained in Five Creative Minutes

Two weeks ago we post­ed CDZA­’s “Jour­ney of the Gui­tar Solo,” an enter­tain­ing tour of 50 years of rock and roll gui­tar play­ing. Now we’re back with the group’s fol­low-up, a fast and fun intro­duc­tion to drums. New York-based drum­mer Allan Med­nard takes us on a quick tour of the instru­ment, demon­strat­ing the basic dif­fer­ences between jazz and rock drum­ming and show­ing how they have evolved over time. CDZA, short for Col­lec­tive Caden­za, is an exper­i­men­tal music video project of a group of high­ly skilled musi­cians in New York. For more exam­ples of their work, vis­it the CDZA Web site.
