This is a tutorial on linking drum patterns.
I Started out in 1976 trying out to sing in bands but no bands were interested in me. In 1977 I started playing guitar. The individual that was teaching me (who for now will remain anonymous) told me that I would NEVER learn how to play guitar because I had no sense of rhythm. I joined my first band in 1978 called "Dead Center" in Jacksonville, Florida. I played an Aspen guitar, black; a Les Paul copy and in 1981. I gave that guitar to the teacher who said I'd never learn to play. I wrote my first song in 1979 or '80. Over the years I have been in many bands but my passion has been songwriting. I have written well over 100 songs and though the early ones were kind of rough around the edges, I think that most of them could be dusted off and given a new facelift. Today I am still working on my songs. Currently I can play guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, harmonica, and Native American flute. The flutes that I play are ones that I made myself. My guitars are the Epiphone G-400 faded, an Ibanez RG370 DX, an Epiphone G 1275 double neck guitar. My acoustic guitars are an Alvarez 12 string and an old Kay guitar. My drum set is a Peace drum set. I do my recording on a Zoom HD16.
Hey mark, 1st of all thanks for all the videos and the hard work I know that’s no small task… Much appreciated I’ve had my zoom 16 for quite a long time but it has just been collecting dust I have not had the time or energy to try to figure out how to use it I’m a drummer I’ve been playing drums since I was 12 and I’ve never really recorded much or I’m not really technical in that way but I want to learn what I was wondering is.. I have an electronic drum kit (Roland TD20, and I want to run my drums/guitars through and record live and then burn a CD. I’m sure I can figure out how to burn ACD through the videos you’ve already posted my question is more along the lines of how do I will run my drums into the zoom what is the best way which channels or I’m really not sure what questions I should be asking.. do I needor can i use a midi cable? ..or just reg instrument (1/4″). Is this explained in any of your videos?.. and if so.. which one?
Thanks for your time.
This is something that I have not done. I would like to give you what info I do have though. The Zoom can accept information through the MIDI and the USB. I do not know how it works on the Zoom. It might separate the drums or just record it on one track. If you experiment I’d love to know how it goes…
Sorry for the delay in responding.
If I do not hear from you soon I will try your email on record to get in touch with you.
Really wonderful info can be found on blog .
