More practice videos

I know I look like a total wreck today, especially with my terrible mop of hair. That aside, here are some beats I'd like to share today :

This one's the rhythm that just flowed naturally into my head the other day. The one I said would suit a song better. And the problem is, that I only have the drum part, but neither the melody nor the lyrics. -__- Which brings me to the next question : is it possible to write a song when you've only got the drum part in your head ?

Oh, and I also realised that I was putting on that weird face for the first half a minute or so, and that the video and the audio are not aligned. So the audio is lagging one beat behind the video (considering that I played at 104 BPM).

And for this second vid, I told a few friends that I thought of experimenting with taiko. The experiment turned out pretty crappy (because, as you can see, I was hitting at the wrong places sometimes :P). This would've been a profound vid, if only I wasn't embarrased.

For both vids, I was playing on loud, so I was kinda scared of waking everyone up. Something inside me told me to play with considerable care (as in, take note if anyone screams because the drumming is way too loud). So there you go. Two practice vids. Feedback please ?

Hahahaha. It rhymes. I found very amusing. :D

Hmm. I don't mean this to sound contrary, but the way you play...it sounds like you know you're being recorded. I mean, obviously you know it. I just mean, I don't sound the same when I record myself...doing anything. Because I know I'm recording myself. Like I'm holding back--just a bit--because I'm paying more attention to expectations/myself than I am to what I'm doing. Maybe I'm wrong. You sound good...it just seems reserved, that's all. :)

I understand ^_^ Thanks for the pointer ! I guess I've gotta lighten up a little more, ya ?
