Gary’s prominent use of cymbals makes a significant contribution to his musical expression and forms a great deal of his personality at the kit. In this videocast, he takes you on a tour of a set of cymbals he has put together, and discusses the reasons behind his preferences and the particular qualities of each. He suggests considerations you might like to make when putting together a set of cymbals covering subjects such as dynamic range, instrumentation of the band you’re playing with, achieving stereo effect and grip of the stick. He examines expanding the roles of the cymbals beyond the convention as well as hi-hat playing with examples of pedalling and sticking.

He performs three short but strong tracks to demonstrate different elements of cymbal playing, all of which can be downloaded as drum-less mp3s with corresponding click tracks for you to experiment with.

Gary also includes in the videocast package a PDF with links to performances by players who have been instrumental in broadening and influencing his own conception of cymbal playing.
