  1. Here's a cool treat. My good friend and long collaborator George Marios, worked on a series of covers and he asked me to play drums on these tracks. This is the first track: his version of "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons. George's arrangement is pretty sick. His usual use of syncopated stabs and odd-time signatures, puts a smile on my face It's fun to play and it was even more fun to create the drum track for the song. ENJOY!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkd-DmDZkBE
  2. Hey guys!! Here's Periscope from the Vic Firth's Play-alongs, once again. A mixture of Electronics and funk and whatever else... XD Hope you enjoy and don't forget to hit that like and subscribe to my channel for more videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQ2QhL2LXPU
  3. Everybody knows the riff from "Chameleon". Herbie Hancock Docet! But this version... So groovy and chilled... I had to play it! Harvey Mason nails the arrangement on this track (check his drumming out). This is my version of it... Hope you enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbATHexpsP4
  4. It's ROCK time!!! My last rock tune was with Gregg Bissonette's "Submarine" and I had a blast! Round 2: Carmine Appice! What can I say? The man is a legend in the 70's rock scene. I say, Vanilla Fudge? The man played with Jeff Beck himself! Anyway, Stash! Feedback are appreciated Peace out fellow drummers!!
  5. Another great track from Zoro! I tried to keep it simple but then I decided to go for a crazy fill at one point XD I don't know how well it fits but I enjoyed this track!

  6. Cool poppy tune with funk and rock influences. Fun to play. Check the original out by Rhett Frazier in the Vic Firth Play-Along section. Hit that like button if you enjoyed the video and support my channel by subscribing to it. Cheers guys! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZGSY_J3Cec
  7. "THE FUNK MONK"... The Funkiest/80iest backing track ever. Enjoy this take on one of the many Vic Firth's play-along list. Originally performed by Zoro. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZvXRLq-k9Y
  8. Cheers man I appreciate it
  9. Finally I decided to go with a heavier backing track. I met Gregg Bisonette on a couple of occasions (he came to teach a couple of masterclasses where I use to study), and he's just great. So patient, kind and humble. Everything you would expect from a legend, right? This track stuck in my head since the day he played it at our school.This is my version of it. Hope you enjoy!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvNubCqtdxY
  10. "Code Funk" - Dave Garibaldi - Francesco Azzariti

    Cheers man
  11. Hey guys! I was practising Garibaldi's king kong concept and all of his combinations with ghost-notes. What a legend! Everything's groovier with the king kong beat. Anyway, after practising for awhile I still had some funk in me, so I put the camera on and went for a Tower of Power tune. I'm using a YAMAHA DTXtreme III (awesome kit). Enjoy and if you like, share it

  13. Hello!!!! This is an old one... Well maybe a month old XD Anyway, I was practising the "Groove Essentials" method one day, and Tommy Igoe put some great backing tracks in there. Very groovy and tasteful. So what da hell was I thinking on not playing with them before??? Here's Groove#67, from Tommy Igoe's "Groove Essentials 2.0". Highly recommended Enjoy!!! And please, comment and give me feedback. Previously, a lot of you made me notice the sound and the kick volume in the recordings. I think it's getting better.
