Drumeo Gab Podcast

Are ya tired of hearing, "so, like, uhh talk to me about how you started playing drums" in drumming podcasts? I'm gonna say, probably not as much as the guests are. I dunno, I think it's better to cut to the chase and explore pinpoint moments in their lives by forming curiosities around my research :0 IF YOU ARE DOWN FOR THAT; WELCOME! (Side Note: I strongly believe that the best part of the podcasting experience for listeners is the ability to connect with the host. So, don't be shy :)

Welcome back to another episode of the DrumGAB podcast.  This weeks’ guest, Tim Buell, speaks to us from Nashville, TN.   Episode four is quite anecdotal.  It spirals into several rabbit holes throughout the interview and for the most part is completely spontaneous.  Like all interviews that I perform, I always have notes and questions prepared for each podcast, however, on this occasion, I referred to them twice.  

Tim has such an interesting background with drums.  The stories about his time in Belmont University are a definite highlight in this podcast episode.  He studied under both Derico Watson and Chester Thompson, while at Belmont, among other teachers.  Tim shares some of his experiences while studying with these two iconic players.  In particular, the story about him and Chester is something you won’t want to miss.

Tim also elaborates on the fine balance of being yourself as an artist and “getting the job done” as a Nashville session musician. We go pretty deep here, to say the least, and I believe we uncover some really interesting points of view that perhaps you, the listener, might take into consideration when you enter a studio or a live musical setting.

Later on, we talk about the great Brian Blade.  I don’t want to spoil anything here in the podcast notes but this story is the cherry on top with this episode.  A close encounter with this magnificent drummer and how any great player can make any situation work for them.

Finally, we wanted to promote Tim’s new Ableton Live video series titled “Ableton For the Working Drummer”.  This video series that Tim has produced focuses primarily on how to run tracks in Ableton.  Up until now, there haven't really been any resources, according to Tim, on how to run tracks in Ableton so he wanted to remedy that.  Catch the video series, it will launch today, 01/25/17 and he will have this available for a limited time before he will take it down for further refinement.

The track at the beginning of this episode is titled “Sides of the North” by Remedy Drive.  Tim endorses Vic Firth and The Drum Wallet.

I hope you enjoy the anecdotal nature of this interview and please subscribe and leave a review, every little bit helps!!
