Hello everyone. My name is Graeme Hare and I’m a drummer/teacher from the North East of England. I’ve recently joined the Istanbul Mehmet family and this is my first blog.
I just wanted to say hi, introduce myself and outline the content of future blogs.
Hello and welcome in my blog. I’m very proud and glad to be invited by Istanbul Mehmet cymbals to share with you some exercises from my different books.
Hello and welcome in my blog. I’m very proud and glad to be invited by Istanbul Mehmet cymbals to share with you some exercises from my different books. In this case, for this lesson from my book « Total Update » volume 1, I want to show you how to apply and learn the process of conversion from scales to rhythmic phrases. All that in Nañigo style.
Hi everyone and welcome to my first blog here on the Istanbul Mehmet site!
I am currently on a long European tour with Chris de Burgh and I want to talk a little bit about how I prepare for a tour, the equipment I use and just a bit of general insight. This tour is quite different to what I have done in the past and has presented a big challenge from the get go.
The Boi de Zabumba” (Zabumba’s Ox), also known as the Guimarães Accent or Baixada Accent, had its origin in the municipality of Guimarães, in the coast of the state of Maranhão, northeast Brazil. This rhythm, also called accent, is characterized by the presence of zabumbas (bass, mid and high drums), as well as other percussion instruments: pandeirinho or repinicadores (kind of very little drum) and maracás (kind of shaker).
