  • New Weekly Sessions at Main Drag - First up - Drum Tuning with John Fell - Thursday, June 6 at 6pm - Free!

    drumtune_bloghead


    We're going to be having weekly free sessions here at Main Drag. We'll be covering topics from a wide variety that are of interest to our community and making music here. We'll demo products and have workshops, have some pretty cool guests coming in and overall hope to have you over for a good time - and maybe we can all learn something in the process.

    First up, next Thursday, the 6th of June at 6pm, our resident guru John Fell will be giving a seminar on the art of drum tuning.

    John's going to pass on some wisdom about head selection for the sound you want, different kinds of tuning, muffling and even some playing pointers for getting the sound that you hear in your head for studio or live playing.

    Bring a snare if you like, and if there is time, John will spend some time with you after the seminar having a look at it and perhaps showing you an additional thing or two.

    This is completely free of charge - all you need to bring is open ears and an inquisitive mind!

    See you there!

    We're going to spend some time this summer and fall profiling our community and the people who make music here. We'd like to show what a wonderful variety of people make up the local musosphere we at Main Drag are part of - bands, solo artists and sessioneers, producers and engineers, rehearsal studios - the whole spectrum.

    We'd love to have you participate, and it wouldn't take up much time and would be a great way to let everyone know about yourself and what you do with music.

    Each profile will include some video, photos and stories about you and we'll feature those on our site and video channel. The main goal is to show just how much work and effort and commitment goes into what we love doing.

    If you are interested in learning more, and perhaps getting involved, please contact Struan at struan@maindragmusic.com - please let us know who you are and how you make music here.

    Look forward to hearing from you - Thanks!
