    Default Stick Trick King 2019 (Stick Tricks While Playing 360 video)

    Hello and welcome to my thread.
    My friends refer to me as the "Stick Trick King" for obvious reasons. Not many can do what I can in fear of walking away looking like a pirate; so I don't necessarily suggest trying this at home! I am also a bit of an innovator in the drum world, doing things that I have never seen before nor have ever been done before; especially in a live scenario. From the way I custom made my drumset with built in Lights and Smoke all the way to innovating some of my original "moves and tricks." Like Turning around and playing backwards mid song (the King Shunned), Behind the back snare hits (Covert King), Kneeling while playing (Bow to the King), Sitting on the floor tom propping My foot up while playing (Leisure King), Right to left stick flips (King Pick a Hand), Floor bounced sticks (King 5 second ruler), Standing outside of the hi-hat but still using bass drum, snare, hat functions opening and closing and toms like normal. Bass drum and hat pedals are used independently via toe or heel (Ghost King on the Throne), Stick drop snare hits (Matrix King), mirrored traditional grip with little movement (Stone Cold King).... And the list goes On with other names like King Propeller Head a twirled stick atop your head.....
    If it was impossible, I am Sure I have tried it. If I did it on my own and hadn't seen it before I am Sure I named it King.... The trick used the least by me is the fake rock-spin what kind of King would use something like that, it isn't named KING! If you borrow any of my tricks which I hope you do, please name them after me in "King" fashion like they used to do with skateboard tricks. After all, THE DRUMMER IS ALWAYS THE KING OF THE BAND; which is why YOU THE DRUMMER sit upon a THRONE while playing!
    Enough about me in the not so brief braggy like description, just trying to introduce myself with a bit of humor to those who ran across me by chance. I am a rather humble person who loves to eat sleep and play drums... This thread has some snippets of my New Years Eve Show 2018/19 where we played 5-45 minute sets that night (approximately 60 songs, so at the end yes I was exhausted!!!) We use no microphones on the drums and no sound man, so this is a live sound from the camera(s). The louder the band plays, the louder I hit so there are few ghost notes in my playing; why waste energy...
    I won't boor you with the entire sets, but rather just include a few videos. These videos were taken in 360 degrees and look best in a VR headset like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive where in 360 video the drums are viewed at a life-size scale. The videos have 2 views of the stage synced into one video so you can some-what pick your angle. These are videos just having fun doing what I love and I made them myself for you to watch and share. I hope they inspire you with adding to your playing style and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

    I am the King of my Throne, Rock on!

    Very interesting. Welcome to DC! I’m glad you’re enjoying your playing and most importantly, you’re doing your own thing. That’s what it’s all about. Personally, I’m better off concentrating on the music and doing my best to stay focused on the “groove”...not to mention the physical aspects of standing up, sitting down, walking around and waving my arms. I’m too old and back is too bad. I’d last about 30 seconds before tripping over something or knocking everything over. Or even worse; spilling my beer.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    No, I am not competing with Steve Moore, (the drummer at the wrong gig.) I have been doing stick tricks for about 15 years, I began because I got into a plateau with learning and playing. With no new challenge after years of learning I had to change it up for a challenge. The only person I am competing with is myself. Like actors in Hollywood, there are many out there and there is room for us all.
    Have a great day.

    Welcome to the forum, love your enthusiasm and innovation on building your own kit. As far as learning it all and needing a new challenge? Well I find that very hard to believe and hope I never reach that point, but maybe you mean that you have learned everything you want to learn. In either case I look forward to chatting with you going forward and breaking out my old Oculus and viewing these video's again.

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing.
