Modern Drumset Techniques For Today's Worship Drummer

Phil’s Fill

Phil Collins, whether you love him or loathe him, is a good drummer. He just is. Well, in my opinion, anyway. His prog drumming with the band Brand-X is worth checking out, and he also sounds pretty decent laying grooves down for Eric Clapton and the Buddy Rich Big Band. However, he is perhaps most well-known for playing ‘In The Air Tonight’ (as shown below). What does this have to do with ‘Church drumming’ you say? Lot’s. Currently I am writing about it in my book. At this point,  I will only say three more words to conclude this brief post. BIG CHORUS. STADIUM. More to follow on the next article. In the meantime, check out Phil’s playing!
