Chad Smith – Red Hot Rhythm Method
Nov 30 2015
Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers walks viewers through his drumming techniques for various songs on the album Blood Sugar Sex Magic in this instructional program. Flea, bassist for the band, also makes an appearance to discuss with Smith the rhythmic process and the conceptualization that takes place during songwriting.
Chad Smith covers everything in this video from basic rudiments, warming up, tuning your drums, to grace notes. He plays along to all the classics off of Blood Sugar, plus some oldies like “Nobody Wierd like me” and “Higher Ground”. Dont forget to check out his original “Fire hat solo”, which he does in this video, with the fire hat on! he plays along to: Suck my kiss, Give it away, Breaking the girl, Mellowship Slinky In B Major, My lovely man, Power of Equality, Greeting song, Suck my kiss, If you have to ask, I could have lied, Naked in the Rain…
At the end during the credits, he plays along with the old song “Fela’s C*ck” Towards the begining, Flea joins the video and they play “Nobody Wierd like me”, and “Higher ground”. They also do a pretty long improvisation funky jam that is just so awesome. So you will see Flea on about 85% of the dvd, AND you get to see Chad’s sweet vintage Mustang at the begining…
You wont be dissapointed, even if you are a RHCP fan, and you dont play an instrument, you will still enjoy this video. Thats how good this dvd is!
