EVEN IF YOU DON’T LIVE IN CLEVELAND, YOU CAN STILL TAKE DRUM LESSONS WITH CHIMAIRA’S ANDOLS HERRICK
Andols Herrick is easliy one of my favorite drummers in modern metal. And when he’s not working with the mighty Chimaira, he’s giving drum lessons! So while you might usually think “Gee, that’s awesome, I wish I lived near him in Cleveland so I could study with him,” Herrick is now going to be offering lessons via Skype, which means you can study with him no matter where you live. Sez Ballsinrmouth:
The lessons will be similar to the in-person ones done in Cleveland — usually split between focusing on hands and focusing on the whole kit (or just kick drum pads, if noise is a problem). As long as you have either a webcam or a built-in one on your laptop, all you have to do is download Skype and the video to video interaction doesn’t cost anything.
If I played drums or even had the hand-eye coordination necessary to try and play drums, I would totally take advantage of this opportunity. And while I’ve only met Andols for like a fraction of a minute, everything about him screamed “Incredibly nice dude!” Interested parties can contact Andols at drummerandolsherrick AT yahoo DOT com.
