These videos bring together 3 things I love in life; drums, film, and physics. A company called Ultraslo, who specializes in high speed (slow motion) cinematography, shows us what a drum hit looks like at 3000 frames per second. The above video displays the resonant force involved in each and every stroke of the drum that is undetectable to the naked eye, and it is awesome!
Guitarist Ben Higgins not only mimics 30 of the greatest metal guitar players with ease, he hones in on exactly what makes each of them truly unique from one another while using their signature style as part of his own crazy solo. This is obviously not a simple YouTube video, but a true love for his craft and the metal guitar greats that inspire others to pick up the instrument. If you stick around after the solo, you’ll find an hour long instructional video that details the style of each guitar player you’ll find within the solo. Whether you play guitar or not, this is a must watch.
