R David R is a YouTuber, and a drummer. He doesn’t just play the drums, and teach people cool tricks to save them money and headaches, he’s also a killer videographer, and fellow fan of Mayor-of-YouTube Casey Neistat. I’d watched David’s channel for almost 3 months before I made the flattering discovery that he was watching mine as well.
Anyway, David made me a cowbell! Out of the blue, I get a package. (Ok - not totally out of the blue, since I had to give him my address.) Only request - I make a video of his bell and put it on YouTube. Shoot - I was gonna do that anyway.
Actually, you might want to check out the lesson he made about making the bell for me by searching “RDavidR More Cowbell” on YouTube. (He hadn’t provided me the URL as of the writing of this email;)
Anyway, for my lesson this week, I mined the gamut of Famous Cowbell songs, and chose two: one a classic, another a fusion-nerd-classic. I’ll show you what little I know about mambo on the drumkit, then dive into the songs!
For the comments, what’s the coolest thing you’ve ever gotten in the mail?
