6 June 2013 ~ Jeff Rich Visits - 1


On Thursday 6 June Jeff Rich, former drummer with Status Quo,
visited to talk about various drums and give us a demonstration 
of what it's like to be a drummer in a band.

First he told us about simple wooden drums 
and how later animal skins would be used to cover them.
Jeff Rich introduced us to some African drums, 
one of us was invited to play with him.

Then we heard about the African Talking Drum 
and the range of sounds it can make.

The marching drum needed a strap to help support its weight.
