Drum Videos | Fun With Brushes Pt. 2

As I promised last week, here’s a couple of videos of some great pop grooves that used brushes to get an awesome sound.

First up is Liberty DeVito playing the groove from Billy Joel’s Just the Way You Are.

And second we have an example of forgoing sticks altogether and using brushes to get a fatter sound from the drums.  The tune is Fire and Rain by James Taylor played by studio great, Russ Kunkel.
