Choice Drums
« on: April 07, 2006, 12:33 PM »
If you have iTunes, check out this link. Its a collective (playlist) created by iTunes.  Looks like they're creating a "best of" of songs that posess good drumming.  I think they should have used the Cafe as a refrence, but some of these are pretty good choices.

There are over 40tracks on this playlist so I can't post them all, but lots of standards.   iTunes is a free install to view & preview tracks online.. its worth the install, you don't need to buy anything.
