Revisiting Brushes and Tap Dancing

Back in 31 August 2010 I posted Appreciating Brushwork and Some History. That post contained a discussion of, and link to, a site dedicated to brush playing and some interesting theories on the origins of brushes.

Just prior to that post I posted a short piece in 17 March 2010 titled Clayton Cameron on Tap Dancing and Brushes. That post is in the sister blog to this one - Snare Drum Addict - which is more focused on gear and technique.

Recently, Jon McCaslin, whom I often quote or link to his blog here and on Snare Drum Addict, recently wrote a piece titled Baby Lawrence that will be of interest to brush players.

If you are not familiar with Jon's blog, Four on the Floor, I highly recommend you check it out and go exploring. It's a treasure trove of information on a wide ranging array of drum and music topics. Jon is a Doctoral Candidate at University of Toronto, as well as an active musician who has released albums.
