Finger drumming, or pad playing, or whatever you want to call it, is a skill that despite pads being so popular a feature on production gear very few people regiment themselves to practice with them in the same way they would another instrument. Jeremy Ellis is one of – in our humble opinion – the world’s leading finger drummers, and he’s keen to spread the love and help you guys out.
Over the past few months Jeremy has been putting out a huge volume of short but to the point tutorials that teach everything from his recommended sound placements to patterns to dexterity drills and more, and following them is a sure fire way to improve in an aspect of music production that few people pay as much attention to as they should.
