Many Things Not Covered

I'm surprised there is not one lesson devoted to fills and how to put together a song? Whereas there are many lessons that are redundant and move along too slow. Once a topic like using the reverb is discussed the presenter doesn't have to slowly go over things like "this is how you turn it up...this is how you turn it down...all the while showing how to turn a slider or knob up and down. It's pretty ridiculous. And not enough time was devoted on how to record audio clips and then how to clear the recorder to record another beat. I'm not sure if it's a bug in my software, but there are many times where I cannot clear a clip from the clip board. Overall these are good tutorials, there just needs to be some effort towards how to put songs together using different parts....maybe I missed something, but I have not been able to find that lesson if it does exist?

Response from :

Hi there, so sorry you didn't find what you were looking for in this series. Honestly, the Advanced series are more about the finer points of the software, and make sense after you have gained basic operating knowledge. Have you tried Addictive Drums 2 Explained? This is more of a ground floor series and may have what you're looking for. Thanks again for your feedback and enjoy the site! - Your Groove3 Team

Luke Oswald Professional Drummer and Instructor

1. When did you start dabbling in music?
I've always had an interest in drumming from a young age and started playing in 6th grade when a family friend stored their drum set at my parents house for a summer. I started playing in church the next fall and have been playing ever since. No one had to tell me to practice, it was just something I loved to do. I just enjoyed everything that had to do with drumming.

2. What training have you had?
I studied piano at a young age, then played trumpet from elementary through middle school. I started drumming on my own at the age of 12, then switched to drumming as my main instrument in high school and went on to study in college along with Music Business. I've been teaching drums since college, both private instruction and drum clinics.

3. When did you get into recording?
When I was in middle school/high school, I was very interested in music technology. It was much different then, but I remember recording/sequencing song arrangements with music software and filming videos and editing in camera all the time. In and after college, I started learning about audio production when I was recording drums for the bands I was in.  In the late 2000's I stumbled upon drum sample technology, and that changed everything for me. I started really digging into the study of audio production, recording, mixing and mastering. I started studying video production around the same time as I knew I wanted to eventually film high quality drum videos while using this sample technology.

4. People you have worked with/for?
During my time in Nashville, I studied drums with Derico Watson (Victor Wooten), Jeff Bowders (Paul Gilbert), Will Denton (Steven Curtis Chapman, LeAnn Rimes), Marcus Finnie (Kirk Whalum, India Arie) and Raymond Massey (Pearl Drums). I've recorded drums on multiple albums produced by Sadson Music Group and have played on albums with artists such as George Clinton and Samantha Ware.

5. Why are you so good at training people?
To me, teaching is as inspiring as performing. When you teach, you're forced to understand the topic at a much deeper level.  I love the process of learning and improving, and to me teaching is just an extension of that process. I learn something new every time I teach anything, whether it be a drum lesson or a software tutorial. I also believe as artists we have a responsibility to pass on the knowledge that we've accumulated. You must take action and apply what you've learned to your own life, but that only goes so far.  If you can take what you've learned and share it with someone else, you're giving them the opportunity to take that knowledge, nurture it and allow it to influence their own lives. Eventually, they can pass that knowledge on to someone else, and the process keeps going. You never know the impact you can have on someone simply by sharing with them what you've learned.
