Yogi Horton Drum Lesson Funk/R&B

This is absolutely fascinating. Yogi Horton was a true master of his craft. This is a must watch if you're a drummer. Its even a much watch if you're any musician, producer, or drum programmer. Watch and learn. Incorporate these ideas and grooves into your drum programming. Thanks to Dan Konopka for sharing this with me.

Daniel Andrade La Vie En Rose

"La Vie En Rose" was written and originally performed by french cabaret Édith Piaf.
It has some of the most beautiful melodies I've ever heard.
I knew the song from the Louis Armstrong version which is definitely
worth checking out.

There are lots of covers out there but this one by Canadian Singer 
Danielle Andrade is simple and spectacular.

Rick Rubin

"I never decide if an idea is good or bad until I try it. So much of what gets in the way of things being good is thinking that we know. And the more that we can remove any baggage we're carrying with us, and just be in the moment, use our ears, and pay attention to what's happening, and just listen to the inner voice that directs us, the better."
-Rick Rubin
