Beyond the Pulse: Melody and Magic on Bass Drums
Armory 4th Floor Room D 4/29 12:15
Rhythm MusicIn a drum circle or ensemble, the low-pitched bass drum creates the backbone of the rhythm — the sonic pattern that other players orient to.   Learn the secrets of juicy, melodic bass lines that are fun to play, and add depth and interest to the music.  Though the techniques are pretty simple, it takes a special orientation and sensibility to bring out the full potential of playing the bass!    Some bass drums will be provided.  Other drums can also be used as good substitutes.
