It's hard to listen to Greg's raspy voice. Love the drummer, love his content but not the voice. It's sounded raspy since I first listened to him 10 years ago on a video.What’s up with Gregg’s voice…LOL
I can see how he’s entertaining.doesn't play the hi hat edge with the shoulder of the stick.
mustn't be a rocker; /
I like Gregg he's entertaining .
I think it's meant for a bit of fun and light education highlighting some very well known (to both drummers/musicians and Joe public) drum grooves over the years. Not everyone who watches Rick Beato's stuff is a muso.It's hard to listen to Greg's raspy voice. Love the drummer, love his content but not the voice. It's sounded raspy since I first listened to him 10 years ago on a video.
But, I doubt it's his fault, neglect, maybe not even a serious issue, vocal cords can get compromised just because...
The main issue I have w/the video is the tabloid title "what you need to know..." that is so rampant its been rendered meaningless. On the surface it implies that someone else is telling you what you 'need to know' since you're not qualified to determine such things by your own intellect/abilities. Therefore, be a mindless zombie and let someone else tell you what 'needs' to be known. Ironically, the content for most of these videos/articles is far from what the title promised. Certainly not the case here with Greg or even Rick, but the phrase has been worn out a long time ago.
My Pat Boone Debbie Boone comment was strictly sarcastic .Gregg is a GREAT educator. His voice? Why are people mentioning it when it's all about helping and educating drummers.
Pat Boone, Debbie Boone? I've heard it a lot. There are short hand, jokey phrases that record producers (in particular) who don't know much about drumming use to explain to drummers what they want to hear.
Four beat snare groove - people used to ask me to play the 'Pretty Woman' beat.
Another UK one is "Flats in Dagenham".
I wish the clips of Gregg on the purple kit had a camera angle behind or to the side so we could better see what he was doing.He has really great time, it feels effortless.
This video was all over the place but enough good stuff to ignore it, cool to see him play HFT.
