So that's how it's done!

The video below shows a drummer in slow-motion. It's amazing to see how the instrument is played, and how a drummer's body produces the speed of motion required.

Interesting stuff. I'll certainly look on drummers with a great deal more respect from now on!

Those deflection pics are interesting... especially the cymbal!

I like the production, but I think drums are like knots: It is more impressive to do the same thing with less.

That is just artistic preference; I admire anyone who can hold a rhythm.
