Nate Smith is an absolute MONSTER pocket drummer. After watching clips of him on Youtube, my playing--hi hat technique on 16th-note grooves-- c o m p l e t e l y changed. When I saw what it was possible to do with each hand on a fundamental groove (hands rooted to hats and snare, all single-hand parts) it gave me the courage to reach for it.

eta: similarly, I recently saw a clip (can't find it at the moment) of a 20-something year old, baby Tony Williams playing with Miles Davis in the 60s, and in this one moment, he reaches his right hand to the rack tom and plays a single-handed figure-- kind of, "riding" on the tom? I think about it all the time, and now there's another thing I "believe" my hand can do. I never would have thought of it except for SEEING him do it.

I feel the same way about bassist Joe Dart, except after seeing him play it, I just say, oh, no, I might be able to play that, but it would take about three straight weeks of practice

I only discovered this guy a couple weeks ago. This boy is a pickin' fool.

It's all good but if you ain't a big fan of bluegrass instrumentals, skip to 3:46, good song:



That man'lin player ain't too shabby, either.

And he can play reglar music, too:

The fan "blade" looks like it's a disk with magnets on it or something like that. Does he have an electric guitar pickup in his hand?
