Exciting performance

Updated: Mar 6, 2020

Here is our next project: Murdoch decided to work on the song "Kill the King" by Megadeth. The process of learning and recording was really interesting. The song is pretty straight forward, but the tempo is quite fast. There is a bit of unusual phrasing where the groove quickly switches between the hi hat and the ride cymbal. In the last section Murdoch improvises some sort of "tribal tom-tom grooves" to imitate the original drummer, Jimmy DeGrasso. I actually met Jimmy a few times at drum clinics and master classes a few years ago and had a chance to talk to him. That was quite inspiring :)
