Here’s an idea based on my previous two videos of my Doctoral Thesis Drum Beat and Inverted Doctoral Thesis Drum Beat. Figured it was time I tried out all the invertions of the Doctoral Thesis rudiment. It follows the same concept as before but uses the Reverse Doctoral Thesis sticking instead!

A bit of bad news to share with you all. My teaching and gigging schedule is usually pretty hectic around this time of year, so I had recorded a bunch of drum videos in advance so I could keep up my usual upload regularity over the next few months. My good friend Benny and I recorded a great session last May ready to release over July and August but unfortunately, due to a massive computer crash, we’ve lost all of the audio and camera footage. Benny and I are both pretty busy people and so I’m not sure when we can get together again to record some more videos but hopefully it won’t be too long before we have something new to upload. In the meantime, we’re rethinking our backup situation and I will continue to promote my existing videos. This was unfortunately the only video we managed to salvage from our May recording session as we had already edited and uploaded it before the crash. I’ll also still be posting my practice room videos from my phone as I record them all the time for my own critique anyway, but my more professionally recorded videos like this one may have to take a hopefully short hiatus. Thanks for following me and your continued support everyone!

My three awesome drum kits!

Top: My main kit, Tama Starclassic Performer B/B in Indigo Sparkle Burst finish. 8x7, 10x8 and 12x9 Rack Toms. 16x14 Floor Tom, 22x18 Bass and 14x5.5 Snare! I also have an extra 14x12 Floor Tom and 13x6 Snare that are not in the picture as I’ve only just got them. Can’t wait to try the whole kit! @officialtamadrums make the best drums I’ve played in 27 years!

Bottom Left: My gigging kit, Tama Silverstar Jazz in Transparent Blue Burst. 10x7 Rack Tom, 14x14 Floor Tom, 18x14 Bass and 14x5 Snare (though I tend to use it with my 14x5.5 Starclassic Snare instead as mentioned above). Wanted something smaller and cheaper for gigging and so I can keep the beautiful Starclassic kit immaculate. This kit usually comes with a 12x8 Rack Tom but I spent a little extra to get a 10x7 instead. I much prefer the crisp, articulate sound of Birch over Maple etc.

Bottom Right: My DW Go Anywhere Practice Kit with my 12” Vic Firth Pad and homemade cymbal pads.

Now I have my two awesome Tama kit’s, my old Yamaha Stage Custom doesn’t get enough credit! Used this kit from 1999 till I sold it to one of my students in 2012. Was helping him set it up today and it felt like hanging out with an old friend haha. This kit served me well for over 12 years and I kept it in inculcate condition considering how many gigs it has done. But that doesn’t matter cos I play Tama Starclassic drums now haha! #drums #yamaha #yamahadrums #stagecustom #oldkit

This drum beat are based on the “Doctoral Thesis” Hybrid Rudiment. It’s a Book Report with an extra grace note double stroke on the second partial.

http://www.ninjadrummist.com/drum-rudiments/hybrid-rudiments/doctoral-thesis-61/

I’ve heard that this rudiment was originally meant to be a joke that someone posted in a forum, but the marching percussion world ended up incorporating it. It’s really hard and I’ve been putting off adapting it into a beat as I have the Book Report for a while!

I am playing the Doctoral Thesis sticking pattern between the snare and hi hats. The bass drum follows the same pattern as the right hand (whenever you hit the hi hat, there’s a bass drum aswell).

I’m working on scripting proper video lessons at the moment so consider this a taster of what’s to come! Watch this space!
