Matt Garstka is the powerhouse drummer for prog band, ‘Animals as Leaders’. I’ve been studying some of Matt’s playing this year and I am really digging his mindset of playing around with musical concepts.
His video ‘3 Qubed’ is an example of developing a concept and stretching out the idea as far as it can go. The piece is in 9/8 and uses a triplet-16th ostinato. I have only transcribed the first 14 bars as I need to get on with my life and from about the 10th bar he hits beast mode.
Check out the entire video on Youtube at the link below and make sure to check out what Matt gets up to with all things drumming.
