[prMac.com] The Hague, Netherlands - Announcing that Go Independent Records (the same company that recently released Drum loops HD and Drum loops HD Light) has recently released a novelty for iOS users. In recent years drummers got their info from books, clinics and DVD's (and of course, lessons). Now it is possible to enjoy the knowledge of a true pro drummer right on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad in the form of a drum clinic, performed by first call drummer in the Netherlands, Hans Eijkenaar. Drum Clinic HD 1.1 is the first of it's kind in the world!
Hans unleashes all of his knowledge and has developed some very special views on studying drums, studying rudiments in a unique independence system, playing in all types of meter, improvising and playing fills in a creative, rather than a technical or standard way. He also is known for having a distinguished brushes technique which he demonstrates in several clips in a seperate brushes chapter. Hans has an extensive international career and has toured with a long list of artists that includes Gino Vannelli, Candy Dulfer, Roger Hodgson, Hans Dulfer and Anouk. He has toured in many countries and performs so far on about 350 albums and DVD's. He is one of the main drums teachers at the Codarts Conservatory in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Hans has decided to go the extra mile in terms of recording a fully featured, HD audio and video clinic app with over 60 clips, presentation videos, instruction videos and play-alongs. And he has recorded a seperate chapter with drum solos and more. All filmed with 6 XD HD cams to capture for once and for all every angle you wanna see as a drummer. Everything recorded in one of the finest recording studios around, Soundvisionstudios, Arnhem, the Netherlands. Every chapter has it's own introduction by Hans himself, in English of course. In the clinic there are several clips in two versions, normal speed and slomo for clarifying certain techniques.
