PASIC 2013 (what I missed...)

It's been a few years since I've been able to attend the Percussive Arts Society annual convention PASIC. But it looks like this year I really missed out on a quite a few great sessions. However, thanks to the inter web we can still get a taste of all the great things that go one that week.

- Here's Ralph Peterson Jr. playing on his big Mapex kit with a large arsenal of cymbals:

- Peter Erskine discusses at length the importance of playing along to recordings and play-a-long tracks and using them as an effective practice/teaching tool:

- Some nice brush playing from UNT's Ed Soph:

- Glenn Kotche demonstrates his unique multiple-percussion approach to the drum set:

- Steve Fidyk shares some tips about sight-reading:

- I thought this one was particularly interesting. Here's Zildjian's head cymbal maker Paul Francis demonstrating a new line of cymbals, apparently some very thin ones too:
