Wow, what a great clinic. Thanks so much - Bart. I really appreciated his open and helpful attitude. It was a very interesting contrast to a clinic I went to with a drumming legend who did a long bombastic and incredible technically abstract solo, played with some tracks, but appeared sullen or resentful and I didn't get anything I could actually use out of the two hours. I left with a headache and wondering what I just heard. Maybe that's just his particular public/life mask.
I sure got some great stuff from the Moore clinic: the importance of: humility, being in a life-long learning mode, not being overly self-critical, the critical need for self-education - learning from and adding to the rich past legacy of world-wide drumming traditions, the importance of simple grooves played with conviction, practicing and continually advancing, maximizing practice time,etc etc etc. I LOVE his approach and playing style.
Bart I posted your main page link on another of my favorite forums, hope you get some membership from it.
