Many years ago, I saw Gerald Heyward perform this song with Blackstreet on the Jools Holland's show here in the UK. This performance completely changed my drumming forever as it started my interest in the Gospel Drumming style. At the time, I had no idea who the drummer was or that there were many other amazing Gospel Drummers out there, I just knew that I had to sound like that lol! Almost everything I know about Gospel Drumming starts with Gerald! Thanks for inspiring a generation!
Thought I'd test my video editing skills by syncing the audio up afterwards as I am using headphones in this video. It's a little glitchy in places but seems to be in time with the track for the most part.
This is the first video I have filmed with my new HD camera. Please watch in HD.
As always, all glory be to God!
The kit I'm playing has sadly seen better days. Its the practice/teaching kit at work and its in dire need of some new skins. But hey, a bad workman blames his tools. I'm attempting to make a good sound on this kit, despite its faults, guess I like a challenge lol! I find kits like this help me make an even better sound when I get to play my nice Yamaha/Zildjian.
