Introduction to the drum lesson: Dave Weckl drum solo

One of the drummers came to fame in the 80's, Dave Weckl has an extraordinary technique and a beautiful musical sense, a unique style that got him into the Gotha of the greatest drummers. Born is St. Louis (USA) in 1960, he completed his musical studies at a very early age, and was still very young when he began his professional career. In 1985 he started his nine-album collaboration with Chick Corea, the most important partnership in his career. During this period Dave Weckl worked both on acoustic and electronic sounds. Dave Weckl has since played with George Benson, Mike Stern, Simon and Garfunkel, Diana Ross, Robert Plant and many others, and besides his many experiences as a sideman, he has recorded with his own band since 1990.
In the drum sheet of this lesson you'll find the transcription of Tower of Inspiration, from the first album "Master Plan" recorded in 1990 by Dave Weckl.
