Pat Torpey – Big Drums
Feb 28 2011
Pat Torpey, the solid hard-rock drummer from Mr. Big, explains the development of his style and techniques through four chapters of exercises, including a spectacular nine-minute drum solo. He also performs and discusses seven Mr. Big songs, explaining his secrets and tricks. Topics covered include paradiddles, grace notes, drum solos, hi-hat work, and basic and double-bass footwork. Features a special performance with Billy Sheehan on bass.
His enthusiasm & energy are just infectious. In this video, he goes over it all: footwork, fills, time you name it. The jams with Billy really add to the overall quality because you can see how he uses what he’s teaching in practical application.
It’s a little dated, & not much has been seen video wise from Pat in a while. But one can get past that in that what you see here, he still does even now. Mr. Big is back with What If… and you can see all of what you see on this video on stage.
