This was shot last year from one of my band Catamaran's gigs. Drums, bass, two guitars. This is just a pre-show warm-up song... Unfortunately, this band is no longer together, but I'm thankful because we're all still friends, and from it emerged two awesome, awesome new projects. Anyways, check it out, we're not like your normal teenage high-school rock band.
Very cool stuff man,
I like it a lot.

Jake, I really appreciate you posting this. It has given me the impetus to re-think and re-approach how I set my kit up, and is going to inspire me to another episode of 'ergonomic cleansing', in my seemingly never-ending quest to make my kit and playing style more efficient.
Part of my problem is, I'm very tall--6'6"--and I have, for years, tended to try to keep the toms and cymbals up in front of me (more or less), to try to have everything accessible as well as maintain a sort of visual perspective. It's also shaped my playing style, which I've never ever been terribly comfortable with. I think, setting my kit up along the lines of yours, I might be able to reduce the workload on my torso, maybe make gigs a little less exhausting. Hopefully, I'd have more fun, too.
I've upped my standards; now, up yours.

I think a lot of guys continually try to make things more comfortable on the kit by repositioning and moving things around. Thank you so much for the kind words and I hope that the drums feel better for you!
