The Fourth Annual Drummer Cafe Community Solo has kicked. This annual event, now in its fourth year, encourages drummers to record their solo accompaniment to a pre-recorded track and upload it to drummercafe.com. Participants can play full drum set, bass only, or cowbell only, so anyone can enter. As an added twist, this year you can also upload the audio or video of your performance.
This year the theme of the Solo is groove. Follow the link below to learn more about this year's community solo and even listen to last year's solo.
