Free Finger Drumming Lessons with the master, Jeremy Ellis

If you’re just getting started playing pads, these videos can be of great help. They helped me quite a bit. Even if you already play, there’s some great techniques shown in Jeremy’s vids. If you’ve never seen Jeremy Ellis play pads, it is truly a sight to behold. He is seriously one of my favorite “drummers” right now.

If you’re looking to buy a pad controller, I recommend the Akai MPD26 below. They’re very affordable and very well made. I have the 24 which is very similar but no longer being produced.

Korg nanoPAD2 Finger Drumming to Synthwave, Retrowave, Dreamwave!

Subscribe to my youtube channel and check out this performance with Ableton Live Intro with a nanoKONTROL and nanoPAD2 control surfaces.

I made a couple of melodic loops but am playing all the drum beats live on the nanoPAD2. I used mostly Simmons SDS7 and SDS5 drum samples and a couple others.

The bass tones are from the Jup-6 free VST plugin, which you can download here http://demonicsweaters.com/2015/02/add-this-to-your-vst-collection-free-roland-jupiter-4-inspired-vst-plugin-for-windows/

The lead and string sounds are the DSX from the UVI workstation soft-synth which you can get for free if you purchase a nanoPAD2.

Thanks for watching!
