Just played tonight in Oakdale, MN for the 2012 Guitar Center Drum Off. It was a fun night and I did have some hard competition this year, but I won the prelims and 3 weeks from tonight I will be going to the store finals for the 7th year in a row!

It's not a perfect solo, I hate DW tom holders as I wasn't able to angle them to my liking but it did the job quite well. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Funny how all non-drummers say that. Just like all non guitarists say to play Free Bird or Slayer *meaning Raining Blood*.

Glad you dug it man. i wish I had the means to watch it in HD on a HD TV. :D

You can still sign up, just go to your local GC and see if there is any spots open, there is two more prelim rounds.

Hmm interesting. I might have to sign up for Xbox live now.


That would be fucking cool, It would be great to see Metal represented at the Grand Finals rather then the R&B and Latin drummers it always seems to be.
