    Are you rushing or dragging?!! Haha whiplash 

  2. Jon-Mark Wilson says:

    He does a very good job at explaining and performing playing lazily behind,
    right smack dab on top, and frantically ahead of the beat. Really nice
    examples. Enjoy all the drummers out there. and even if your not a
    drummer. 

  3. Chris Mejia says:

    so are you rushing or are you dragging, or are you going to be on my
    fucking time

  4. DRUMMINGANDDRIFTING says:

    Awesome explanation! “Dragging” or “rushing” the beat is the mark of a
    truly accomplished drummer/musician. I find it very hard to be consistent
    in this area. Are there any tips/ exercises you might recommend in order to
    attain and sustain control in these areas?

    I dont very like jazz, but i love juzz drumms ^)

  7. Ethan Pardo says:

    This is awesome; not many jazz drumming videos go over concepts like this,
    and this guy explained it perfectly without over-explaining or
    under-explaining in just enough time. Good job mate, I’ll be using these
    concepts in my drumming :).

  8. Aaron Francis says:

    Can someone please help me? What do you do with the bass drum most of the
    time? Are most jazz songs use a feathered quarter note bass drum? Or is it
    really more complicated than that? Snare comping seems fine for me but I
    never quite understand what the bass drum does in jazz. Sorry, I’m really
    new to jazz.

    Eric Harland is a great musician. I saw him in Brazil at the BMW Jazz
    Festival playing with the amazing Joshua Redman. After that I follow his
    works by internet. Thank you for your music Eric.

    GOOD STUFF

  20. DrumAlchemy says:

    Wow such sharing of experience and wisdom, thank you.

  21. Brandon Sotolongo says:

    very usefull

  22. Nathaniel Smith says:

    Man you gotta be really confident to play with a bass player who doesn’t
    put it down the middle. but Eric’s got a reason to be confident in his time
    and pulse.

  23. mario G says:

    thanks for sharing this, superb drummer

  24. payableondrummer says:

    damn, so applicable. i’m still using click when i practice it, i find
    myself losing focus and end up “on top” of the beat without it. so ditching
    it is the next step

  25. cuetip1212 says:

    that is crazy.
