Here’s a brand new Improv POV video I took while at the practice factory with my brother. This one is a little lighter and slower of a mindset than the usual. Enjoy it!

Greetings my friends!
Here’s another Improv POV video for you! This short video includes a little bit of snare rolling, double kick, tons of cymbals, and a heavy breakdown on the china near the end. I’m noticing a slow improvement each time I get behind the kit and it feels great to be able to notice progress! I would also like to let you know that drinking beer and playing drums is not an easy thing to do well.
I hope you enjoy the video and check back here at www.TheEndIsNich.com for more next week!
Recently I’ve acquired my own GoPro! Get stoked because I’ve decided to strap it on my head every once and again when I get the chance to practice. I’ve had tons of positive feedback regarding my POV covers and intend on releasing more in the future but I want to release something a little more intimate. I’ve decided to expand my video library to more than just your typical ‘song play through ‘ and include unedited videos of me just getting lost in the moment. I call it Improv POV. It’s exactly what you think it is. You get to get lost with me.
I hope you enjoy the new addition to the video line-up. Sit back, adjust the volume to what’s comfortable for you, and enjoy the fuck out of the first, Improv POV.
This video is a special one for me. I haven’t been doing drum videos for very long, almost a month now, but I have been very happy with myself that all of my previous videos; 001, 002, and 003 have been captured first take. It’s very satisfying when you get to nail a performance on your first try, not to mention it’s a time and energy saver! Unfortunately I wasn’t that lucky this time around. It took me 3 takes to get this performance to an acceptable level and even with those extra takes that 3rd and final shot still has a few mistakes in it (2 mistakes totalling 7 missed impacts). Due to time restraints I wasn’t able to have another go at it and I thought about it and I decided that it’s ‘Okay‘ to show that I’m not the best drummer out there. I’ll beat myself up all day about it but the reality is it was a blast to play, 95% of the video is in time and well executed, and no one is going to scold me about it.
I guess the takeaway is don’t be afraid to show your weaknesses and make a conscious effort to try harder next time and learn from your mistakes. We’re just human, and there’s nothing perfect about that.
This one is Lamb Of God’s track, The Faded Line.
This week’s video is a play-through I did of the very first Paramore song I heard, ‘Misery Business’. I hope you’re as much of a fan of the band as I am! I can’t get enough!
