HoD has a conversation with Dave DiCenso

September 13th, 2012 · No Comments

I’ve always been fascinated by Dave DiCenso because of his advanced level of expression on the drums mixed with an excellent feel that makes him enjoyable to listen to. Through the magic of the internet and Facebook, I ended up having breakfast with Dave, and even went and did some drumming at my lockout (video of that coming soon!)

I’m proud to present a conversation with Dave DiCenso.

New HoD Video Lesson!

February 20th, 2012 · No Comments

I remember the first “blushda” video lesson back before youtube was even out. It was in wmv format (those were the days). Well some years later we’re still doing it, albeit with better gear and more bandwidth all around. This lesson is about a cool rudiment that you can do a lot with. Enjoy!

2011 was here!

November 22nd, 2011 · No Comments

Greetings front-page readers. It has been a year since the front-page was updated (to my regret), but the HoD community lives on the forum. Activity there is steady and folks interested in the HoD content are encouraged to head on over , create an account, and join the discussion. Or just lurk. Up to you. Either way don’t let the lack of updates fool you. HoD is alive and well.

I still update my YouTube Page a fair bit. Including this one uploaded recently.

Forum highlights May 2010

May 12th, 2010 · No Comments

Lot’s going on the forum as always, here’s some highlights:

  • Here’s an interesting interview with Herbie Hancock where he discusses playing with the great Wayne Shorter, as well as using Vinnie on his recent tours. Discussion on that here. (Thanks “baht habit”)
  • There’s an interesting discussion on the pros and cons of starting in the NY scene with some informative comments from Mark Griffith. Worth a read if you’re thinking about moving to any new city to try and make a living playing music.
  • There’s some great photos and YouTube links from a recent JoJo Mayer clinic. I’m really glad JoJo has emerged over the last few years, he deserves it!
  • Prog Rock pioneers RUSH are the focus of a new Documentary called “Beyond the Lighted Stage”. Youtube links and discussion right here! (thanks Rafael Dolinski)
  • Parts 2 and 3 of the House of Drumming “Flam Rolls” video lessons went up. Links and discussion right here.
  • Looks like our own Peter Erskine was in Columbia, SC recently to do a clinic. Some HoD fans were there to get the obligatory colon pipe picture (nicely done guys). More pics and discussion on the clinic can be found here.

Dave DiCenso’s “Universal Rhythms for Drumset” released

November 8th, 2009 · No Comments

Since I was first introduced to Dave DiCenso’s drumming a couple of years ago, he has easily become one of my all time favorite drummers. He has a unique combination of chops, groove, and feel. He clearly gets the language of drumming and knows hot to tell stories with it. His first book has been released here on Alfred Publishing’s web site.
Entitled “Universal Rhythms for Drumset”, Dave describes in detail more about the book here on his web site. As disappointed as I am that Dave hasn’t made a video instead, I can’t help but recommend his book.
With right instructions it helps decrease the appetite and stimulates the desire for Buy Phentermine Online exercising.
Good luck with the book Dave. You deserve it.
