If you had to listen to a song once while coming up with the drum parts in your head, would you be able to play it with no hiccups from start to finish?
We gave Gil Sharone a drumless track he’d never heard before (“Funky Rastafari”, available in Drumeo Edge) so he could listen to it, write drums for it, and play through it – within minutes.
As you watch him go through the process of learning music, you’ll see how Gil gets ready for a studio session or when he’s asked to fill in for a band. You’ll also realize how quickly he’s able to do it – like learning an entire album on a plane).
During his listenthrough, watch how Gil adds his notes and rough form for each section on a piece of paper in realtime. He also doesn’t write down any beats or ideas, and this seems to work for him!
