Bucket Drumming!

Posted: July 12, 2014 in Drum Videos

Can’t afford a Drum Set? No worries, you could always use Buckets! Remember what I’ve said in the past, that Technique is Technique regardless if you’re playing on a coffee table (hard surface) or a pillow (soft surface). Also, coordination is coordination, keep practicing no matter what you’re playing on. So, let’s see what technique sounds like on a bucket!

This short video features a drummer, Gordo, from Sydney Australia who does many ‘bucket’ performances.To get more on Gordo, visit his Facebook page at
