                                        Hey David it was awesome watching this video it was well put together and watching you play was dope. I'm a drummer myself and I'm interested in joining the ship life but I see you went to Berkeley and have extensive training as do most Berkeley students. I unfortunately did not go to Berkeley or get all of that training but I can play decently and I can play with other musicians and play to a click. What do you recommend I do in order to get the cruise ship gig?

                                          Actually I just checked out some sheet music to see if I can still sight read and I didn't do too bad so i'm going to practice more sight reading

                                                              Killer snare drum sound...actually, they are tuned beautifully but in the end, it comes down to the musician playing them and you're incredible!!

                                                                You are amazing. I have never broke a snare head but I have a broke (or rather the pedal) a bass head, had the cymbal stand happen once and floor toms falling more times than I can count. Again, my compliments to you.

You have everything anyone would be looking for in a drummer, You play much like my brother did! I wish I could only be half as good as he was but that has not happened and I don't think it ever will! I wish the cruses that I went on had a drummer like you when I went!. And I see your still only in your early twenties! Damn ! That just pisses me off as I was never even close to that or am I still at playing as well as you have!
                                                                              I don't really take the time to write to anyone other than the people who just impressed the he!! out of me. Really nice video, You do plan on doing more videos right, It would be a shame to keep that from the people who have yet to see you play. I will keep watching for you name to come up in the future, At bigger and better gigs! Thanks for posting your video!
