Choosing the best Snare Drum – Guitar Center Riff page (Online article)

I saw this information last month and wanted to share it with others. Reading the Snares by Genre content is a different way looking at choosing a Snare drum, as well as the obvious Wood or Metal material of the Snare drum.

The Article is below highlighting these areas:

Table of Contents

Parts of a Snare Drum
Snares by Material
Snares by Genre
Snares for Beginners
Best Budget Snare Drums
Best Piccolo Snare Drums
Best Vintage Snare Drums

I hope the information helps when purchasing your next Snare Drum.

First Thursday Jam

First Thursday Jams with Kelli Campbell, in Dayton, Ohio.
Performed with some friends and met some new musicians as well. Great night back a few months ago, before the Pandemic (Covid – 19).

Full Band – at Wholly Grounds Cafe, close to Downtown Dayton, Ohio

Learning how to listen to others is important. Going into last section of the song, esp. this one, more energy is needed to make it soar to new musical directions. Accenting certain band figures is good too;
don’t overdue it though. Tasteful performances result … like this one.
