This video represents a state-of-the-art instructional tool which will work for the amateur as well as the professional drummer. If you’re not familiar with Cameron’s drumming, he has worked with the likes of George Shearing, Joe Pass, Joe Williams, and Tony Bennett.
Clayton opens with a sweet and flashy brush solo. After the opening solo, Clayton explains how the different parts of the brush can be used to create various sounds. He also gives some good tips on how to select a good pair of brushes and even how to prepare a new drumhead to give you the best possible brush sound. Clayton also throws in some interesting brush history telling us, among other things, that the daddy to our modern brush is the flyswatter!
Clayton teaches a niece assortment of specialty strokes on this video, including the Rim Roll, Rim Flex, Snap Accent, Trill, Butterfly Flex, Tip Tap, Windshield Wipers, and others. Although some of these techniques require lots of practice in order to perform them properly, you’re sure to have lots of fun and learn a lot about brushes along the way.
Throughout the video, Cameron demonstrates practical applications of the brush techniques in performances with a trio, made up of Billy Childs on piano and James Leary on acoustic bass, who alternates with Reggie Hamilton on electric bass. They play songs from Charlie Parker to Billy Childs.
Watching his performance throughout the video, you can tell that Cameron has put in some serious brush time in the woodshed.
