    If so, you guys should check out Travis Orbin on youtube. He used to play in the progressive metal band Periphery and he's a fantastic player. If you like "technical" drummers like Thomas Lang, Virgil Donati or Marco Minneman you should enjoy his playing. Even if you don't like that style of music, it would be silly to deny how talented he is.

    Ahh nice one dude! I'm glad I could turn you on to some new drummers, let me know if you have any questions about Mr. Orbin - I got some of his online lessons and have a chat with him every now and again; he's a real gentleman! Be sure to check out his good friend Alex Rudinger too; he plays a simmilar setup to Travis they're both heavily influenced by Mike Mangini.

    I'll assume that dude can also be applied to females. :P And sure thing, I'll have a look through some of his other lessons- I bet I could learn quite a bit from him. Thanks! So does Travis play in a band? He's so good, I can't see how he could afford not to.

    My apologies for being so presumptuous! Yeah, he plays for a band called Sky Eats Airplane, he has a lot of videos on his channel of his interpretation of songs off of their first album (he replaced the drummer who recorded it) but he does a lot of session work too. Unfortunately, you'll have to purchase his lessons from his bigcartel store but I dont regret buying them. They contained a lot of practical knowledge and just a general insight to his practice methods. Although if you're strapped for the cash I'd recommend trying to get hold of something like "The New Breed" by Gary Chester or Thomas Lang's "Creative Control" they're fairly old so you might be able to find a used copy on ebay or something. Travis draws a fair amount of inspiration from the concepts explored in those books.

    Hehe - it certainly is!. Thank you kindly for sharing, but I hope you're not trying to assert that this guy is better than Travis Orbin. They play completely different styles of music, comparing them would be just as pointless as me saying that Buddy Rich, JoJo Mayer and Vinnie Colaiuta are better than both Travis Orbin and the young man in the Hella video - speaking of which do you happen to know his name? I'd like to see some more of his playing.

    Haha, nah man I just wanted to see what you thought, trust me I've already done this debate to death with my metal-drumming-hard-hitting-double-bass-pedal-thumping-blast-beating friend.

    Why thank you kind sir! I try to keep a rather open mind, I listen to drummers as diverse as Derek Roddy and Gavin Harrison to Jeff Porcaro, Steve Gadd, and Tony Williams.
