  • Publicado el 13 may 2017
  • This is one solo you just gotta keep coming back to. Taken from his live lesson on "The Art & Science of Groove", this drum solo is 8 minutes of Benny Greb demonstrating his deep understanding of timing and groove - and telling a great story in the meantime.

      he is. Him and Todd Sucherman amazed, the level they're on. Todd should def be in a more prog band, no offense to the legendary Styx, but Todds playing is so far beyond what's needed for their music. It's like taking steroids to bench 135 pounds once.

    His left foot work is incredible, never seen a drummer use the hi hat and the second kick drum pedal at once and alternating between the two. This guy is a beast!

      Amazing, but there are many specialists around able to do that, and much more. Flawless tech helps, but it isn't crucial, anyway, what matters is sound and groove, and Benny is a master in that

      Carter Beauford. From The Dave Matthews band had a DVD out from there under the table and dreaming tour. There's a section in it where he explains how he uses his left foot to control the hi-hat and his kick drum at the same time. It was released on DCI music.

    The way he flows with ease around the kit is just beautiful. Instead of lots of little ideas, it sounds like one big one. That, among many other reasons, is why Benny is one of my favorite drummers, and definitely my favorite active drummer.

    He plays off beat on purpose on 1 drum and 1 plate only. he goes through such an immense variation of different beats, he's making my head spin. This guy is a complete monster on the drums.

    I will always stop what I'm doing to watch a Greb solo. However, I must say that he has single-handedly made me reconsider my choice of drum brands. I'm a solid DW fan, but I cannot remember a time when I thought his Sonor gear sounded anything less than awesome. The kit he uses here is amazing; super warm resonant tones - and that floor tom!

    So amazing how Benny Greb switches the onbeats to the left foot on the double bass part in the middle just to keep hitting the Hi-Hat with the left foot...and those single strokes later on...this dude is so crazy both technically and musically

    Muito bom!! Mas muito bom mesmo!!!! Pra mim solo é isso, é o cara alinhar a técnica com a capacidade de groovar, quando o cara sola em cima de um groove é muito mais agradável de se ouvir, quando o cara só fica fazendo batuques sem sentido é muito sem graça, dá a impressão de pouca expressividade, mas esse solo ficou excelente na minha opinião, ele explorou toda a bateria sempre groovando.

    Amazing drum sound, the instrument execution is absolutely precise but also the drums recording has been brilliantly. I am amazed about the snare and bass drum sounds. I see an sm57 on top of the snare, I'd like to know what has been used from below and the kick drum mikes and the recording chain would be a really nerdie joy to know. Also the credits of the sound engineers would be nice. Great video!
