Had to post this video. I’d never seen Yoni Madar play drums prior to seeing this video by Meinl Cymbals but I’ll certainly remember his playing!
Drum solos are somewhat hit and miss for me and I’ve never really been into trying to play solos or composing solos, although I have to say this one was a tad inspiring for me.
I enjoy a solo that has a rhythmic theme or a musical theme… either on it’s own or in a song/band over a musical theme.
This one is both melodic and very rhythmic. Yoni shows some really great independence/coordination and while watching him play I really love his fluid arm/wrist movement. A great example of the “push/pull” technique with those sticks. A great example of both foot and stick control!
