Hey guys...recently I've been watching alot of drumming videos. And I came across a drummer by the name of Cobus. I have to say...he's one of the greatest YouTube drummers I've seen! What impresses me most about this guy is that he is completely self thought, and all his drum covers are completely improvised... And because of his drumming, he is actually sponsored by drum and microphone companies! That's a really huge achievement for just drumming on YouTube!!!!
I'm pretty much now a big fan of his covers... really love his improvisation on his drumming and gave me tons of great ideas to approach the drums in different ways, and between you drummers and me, I think I might switch back to playing match grip because of him! O_o...or not! We'll see =P ...
Regardless as to whether or not you guys who are reading this play drums, you should really check out his videos... they'll make you wish you played drums! HAHA!
This is him covering the Jonas Brothers - Burnin' Up (I know, the Jonas Brothers aren't exactly great when it comes to music but after I watched him covering this song.... I'm pretty much addicted to this song and played along with it like a dozen times literally!!!)
Vanilla Sky - Umbrella drum cover.
And finally my favorite cover of him... PlatnetShakers - Never Stop. I'm not sure whether or not he's a Christian but reading his info box about this particular video, he said he was worshiping God and so this cover was a personal performance for him. SO my fingers are crossed and I hope he is! =)
For more videos of him, go and check his YouTube acc. http://www.youtube.com/user/deedlebag
