Smith vs. Smith

The beginning of this "drum battle" with myself was inspired by the album "Rich versus Roach." In my early teens, I'd listen to the album over and over and tried my best to play like Buddy and Max. As the drum battle starts, on the left side I'm playing in the intense, snare-drum-chops-oriented style of Buddy Rich. On the right side, I'm playing in the be-bop-melodic-lyrical style of Max Roach. As the duet progresses, I'm going for it on both sides and I end by playing some South Indian rhythmic compositions in unison. Having a drum battle/duet with myself was a fun way to conclude the Hudson Music "Drum Legacy: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants" project. - Steve Smith

 
2020 Druntek Clinic Footage

In this clinic video, I am “playing the room,” which means being aware of the size of the space and playing at an appropriate overall level to have the drums sound full - but not too loud for the listeners. I’m demonstrating a wide range of overall dynamics plus inner dynamics, touch, and tone.
